World governments have stopped making efforts towards containing the coronavirus, with North American Societies considering their economies more critical than civilian life. This has extended towards Great Britain, with government personnel allowing “Retail Betting Shops” to resume their operations. These RBSs have been closed for three months, assisting with curbing the COVID-19 pandemic.
Non-Essential Services in the United Kingdom have begun reopening, with Great Britain & Ireland being the first nations permitted to start their economies. Social distancing measures are required but often not being enforced, concerning the National Health Service that a 2nd wave will be 10x worse than the initial.
Corporations like William Hill & Ladbrokes were astounded when government personnel cleared their Non-Essential Retail Betting Shops to resume operations. They were provided permittance three days before the English Premier League resume their activities. Details on how much was wagered on the Chelsea FC match hasn’t been revealed by either company.
Sporting enthusiasts are using Ladbrokes & William Hill as temporary entertainment zones. This follows after football stadiums in Great Britain are remaining closed to guests. Team personnel are the exclusive individuals permitted into all football stadiums. Considering that Williams Hill & Ladbrokes maintain alcoholic beverages with pub-styled food, it’s not surprising that Retail Betting Shops are being chosen by football supporters.
Neither William Hill nor Ladbrokes has banned this level of involvement with their retail locations. Increased traffic means higher profits over short periods. It shows that neither corporation is concerned over the COVID-19 pandemic, believing that their social distancing measures are enough to sanctify the safety of guests. Medical experts in the National Health Service would happily inform both Retail Betting Shops that their mentalities are incorrect.
Critics have been ignored, with both William Hill & Ladbrokes suffering notable losses in the retail sector. Considering that Ladbrokes maintains more than 2400+ locations throughout the United Kingdom, with William Hill managing 1500+ properties, it’s not surprising that their concern doesn’t surround the coronavirus. Executives would demand that management staff obtain the highest profits possible to ensure a prolonged lifespan of their company.
