PHOTOS of diners having breakfast at the Kenyalang Park Market in Kuching, have gone viral this morning, the first day of the movement control order to contain Covid-19.
Netizens were angered with the diners and food stall operators who ignored the directive not to eat in. Most of the diners were the elderly, who are also the high risk group in this outbreak.
Kuching South City Council (MBK) Mayor Datuk Wee Hong Seng who received the complaints immediately went to the location to inspect.
He reminded the hawkers to provide take-aways and delivery services during the restricted movement period.
If this recurs he said MBKS will consider closing all hawkers and food stalls for the next two weeks.
