MANILA -- Philippine integrated resort and casino Okada Manila will retrench more than 1,000 employees next month, citing severe losses triggered by the ongoing coronavirus lockdown.

Okada, along with other casinos in the country, has been closed since mid-March as part of efforts to prevent the spread of the virus known as COVID-19.
