No decision yet on Ramadan bazaar, says Annuar Musa

PETALING JAYA: No decision has been made yet on this year’s Ramadan bazaars, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, says Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa.
He said the Ministry of Health (KKM) and the National Security Council (MKN) had to be consulted first before a decision was made, and it would also depend on whether the Movement Control Order (MCO) needed to be extended.
Annuar tweeted this on Tuesday night (March 31), saying: “The three local authorities will brief me on Friday on proposed bazaar Ramadhan. KKM and MKN must be consulted before any decision made... in the meantime, lets cooperate to make ECMO&CMO effective... stay safe at home”
He said his ministry and the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) were contemplating whether to approve any large-scale Ramadan bazaars after the movement control order period ended on April 14.
He said bazaars that people were familiar with in the past might not be an option, adding that they would have to be in another form to fulfil the needs of city-dwellers during the fasting month.
Health director-general Datuk Seri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said proper crowd control measures would be required if Ramadan food bazaars were to be implemented.
The first day of Ramadan this year is expected to fall on April 23. - Star
