After a long 16-day temporary closure for disinfection and safety measures, Pasar Besar Meru finally reopens for business.
Since the breakout at the location that started the Pasar Baru Cluster, the state government has temporary closed it from 20th December 2020 to 3rd January 2021 for sanitization and disinfection while sending the hawkers and workers for testing. Since the virus has a 14-day incubation period, the location was closed to prevent further spreading of the virus into the Klang community.
Earlier on, a fish hawker started having a fever and was absent for several days. After testing, the hawker tested positive for the coronavirus, causing an uproar at the Pasar.
According to the reporters on site, most of the hawkers that have returned to resume business were busy cleaning up their own stalls. Even so, on the first day of reopening, the Pasar did not see much crowd.
Strict SOP measures will continue to be implemented to ensure the safety of the community.
