With the COVID-19 outbreak having caused a shortage of medical supplies in many countries, Wynn today announced its donation of 1 million medical masks to the Macau government in support of the city’s epidemic prevention and control efforts.
These medical facemasks have now arrived in Macau and were presented by Linda Chen, vice chairman and executive director of Wynn Macau, Limited, to Ao Ieong Iu, Secretary for Social Affairs and Culture, who received them on behalf of the Macau SAR government.
The facemasks will be passed on to the Health Bureau for use. Wynn hopes to make a contribution to the epidemic prevention work in Macau through this donation, which is expected to help reduce the risk of virus transmission, while also expressing its care and concern for all Macau residents.
Wynn said it will continue to support the Macau SAR government’s epidemic prevention and control measures and work with everyone in the community to help overcome the epidemic.

Consolidation of the bases and advancement in adversity was the thrust of Macau Chief Executive’s policy address for 2021, though it gave little away when it came to the current pillar of the economy - the gaming industry.
Gaming suppliers, like all areas of the industry, have felt the pinch from the Covid-19 crisis, though their growing digital businesses have proved a bright spot and helped offset the impact of the crisis.
While nowhere in the world has escaped the economic fallout from the Covid-19 crisis, Macau has been hit harder than most, with forecasts for gross domestic product to shrink more than 50 percent this year.
