Today, Malaysia reported a new high with 6000+ new cases. This means that the pandemic situation is at its critical stage. Just 2 days ago, Jelutong Market in Penang was closed down after reporting 4 positive COVID-19 cases. Today, Batu Lanchang Market Food Court has announced that it will be closing for 1 week.
Batu Lanchang Market Food Court Will Be Closed For 1 Week
The main reason for closure is that the food court reported 3 positive cases among the hawkers as of today, 19th May 2021. Additionally, this closure is a voluntary one with the safety of the public and the hawkers themselves in mind.
So with that said, Batu Lanchang Market Food Court will be closed from tomorrow onwards (20th May 2021) for a span of 1 week. To date, 70 out of 123 hawkers have voluntarily taken the swab tests and are waiting for results.
Take Care And Always Stay Safe
In Penang itself, the number of positive cases has been on a constant surge. Clearly, the battle will not be over soon and it is our responsibility to take care of ourselves and each other. Bye for now!
