Anyone hoping to enjoy the hospitality of Donaco International in Southeast Asia will have to wait at least a little longer. The Australia-listed casino firm has confirmed the Aristo International Hotel in Lao Cai, Vietnam has extended its shutdown by another 7 days.
In an announcement to the Australian exchanges, Donaco confirmed that while the Vietnamese casino initially shutdown on April 1 for a 15 day period, that has been extended an additional 7 days, presumably to April 22.
The April 21 release did not note if any further shutdown extensions are expected. But as Vietnam has outclassed much of the world in its battle with the COVID-19 virus, with only 268 confirmed cases and no deaths, a sudden re-opening of the resort is not out of the question. Vietnam’s Prime Minister, Nguyen Xuan Phuc, has recently noted that the “risk levels” in some areas might be downgraded as early as April 22.
