Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa announced that all hawkers and traders are not allowed to conduct their businesses at residential areas throughout Ramadan.

According to Bernama, this decision is made according to the National Security Council’s (MKN) recommendations that roadside traders and hawkers are no longer allowed to operate.

Currently, only food outlets and restaurants in buildings are allowed to operate by providing takeaway services.

Annuar also revealed that the ministry had received complaints through its WhatsApp public helpline, Pertiwi that some people had opened up stalls selling food for ‘buka puasa’ (breaking fast) at the People’s Housing Projects (PPR).

Despite improving Covid-19 case numbers, Kuala Lumpur remains largely a red zone with 391 active cases as of 12pm, 24th April.

Meanwhile, traders in green zones who want to do business during the fasting month can consult with local authorities in their areas, though the decision is subject to conditions.
