Another market has been ordered to shut due to Covid-19.

This time, it’s the popular Raja Bot market in Chow Kit that’s closed for two weeks from today (29th April) for disinfection while workers will be screened for Covid-19.

Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) Corporate Planning Department director Khairul Azmir Ahmad told The Star that a 2-week closure usually means that someone there has been found positive for Covid-19.

The Raja Bot market is expected to remain shut until 13th May and the public is advised to stay away and seek alternatives for fresh produce.
