And casinos across the globe have taken extreme precautions to keep the virus at bay.
A gambler from Las Vegas had to be forcefully dragged out of the famous 4 Queens casino since he was not wearing a mask. The four security guards, all of them wearing masks had to use handcuffs to escort the man outside. The casino has implemented strict rules during the time of this pandemic due to hundreds of visitors each day. As per the footage available, the gambler was not co-operating with the escorts. Onlookers watched, while the man tried to restrain himself who was heard shouting and trying to defend his act. The man also tried to ask for help, but onlookers did not come to his rescue. He reportedly held onto the stair banister but to no avail as the guards handcuffed him.
