“The areas cleaned include door and refrigerator handles, tables and chairs, walls, floors, goods boxes, rubbish bins, drawers and chicken processing area as well as entrance and exit points.

“During operational hours, enforcement personnel will check the temperature of all traders, workers and visitors to the market. On Sunday, we checked 2,796 people in total.

Kajang Municipal Council (MPKj) has identified 86 areas to be repeatedly disinfected and sanitised according to a schedule.

MPKj public relations officer Kamarul Izlan Sulaiman said the areas include Menara MPKj, multipurpose community halls, public markets, food courts and public toilets.

“Although traders and business premises owners are adhering to the movement control order, our enforcement officers have to continuously remind visitors to practise social distancing especially in markets and supermarkets.
