All Ramadan bazaars in Selangor are canceled this year following the outbreak of COVID-19, said Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari.

He said the decision was made based on the current situation of the outbreak in the state, but if the Ministry of Health (MOH) allowed the Ramadan bazaars to be held later, the state government would adopt the recommendation.

“At this point, we have cancelled the Ramadan bazaars and this matter has been discussed online with the local authority presidents throughout Selangor, but if the MOH says they can be held, then we will hold them (Ramadan bazaars).

“However, I believe, with today’s online sales and delivery capabilities, there may be an online Ramadan bazaar,” he told a media conference here today.

Previously, Negeri Sembilan and Terengganu announced the cancellations of Ramadan bazaars following the outbreak.
