Covid-19: Jinjang Utara morning market closed for disinfection from Jan 25 to 27 after two fishmongers test positive


THE Jinjang Utara morning market will be closed from Monday (Jan 25) to Wednesday (Jan 27) for a disinfection exercise.

The closure was due to two Covid-19 cases reported at the market.

Kepong Hawkers and Petty Traders Association vice-chairman Deric Teh said two of the fishmongers at the market were down with Covid-19.

"We suspect that the patients contracted the virus from Pasar Borong Kuala Lumpur in Selayang.

"The closure has gotten the approval from the association members and market traders.

"Meanwhile, we urge market traders and their helpers to get Covid-19 swab tests before the reopening of the market on Thursday (Jan 28)," he said, adding that such precautions are for the safety of the public.
