Recently, Penang has been recording a surge of COVID-19 cases on a daily basis. Every day, new cases hit over 100 and this situation is indeed worrying. Just hours ago, Jelutong Market has been closed for sanitization works.

According to the official notice released by Majlis Bandaraya Pulau Pinang, Jelutong Market has to be immediately closed down following a record of 4 positive cases. These cases involve hawkers operating in the market.
