Macau Postal Savings, a government-owned credit institution, announced that it suspended its services Thursday until further notice.

According to a statement by the Macau Post and Telecommunications Bureau (CTT), which runs the institution, the suspension is “due to the development of the novel coronavirus”.

Meanwhile, a separate CTT notice has announced that its Western Union Money Transfer Service “is temporarily out of service.”

The Western Union Money Transfer Service is popular with Macau’s migrant workers.

At the end of last year, Macau had 196,538 non-resident workers, according to the Labour Affairs Bureau (DSAL). Mainland Chinese and Filipinos accounted for 62 per cent and 28 per cent of all migrant (non-resident) workers respectively.

Macau’s total workforce stood at 389,800 at the end of last year, according to official data.
