Market in Manila shuts down as one vendor tested positive with COVID-19

The Trabajo Market located in Sampaloc, Manila was shut down by local authorities after a female vendor recently tested positive for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

The patient was confined at the Philippine General Hospital last week and her COVID-19 test results came back positive on Saturday, prompting officials of Barangay 456 to close the market.

“Lockdown na raw po ang palengke dahil meron po na-trace na isang magba-baboy na positive raw po sa [COVID-19],” barangay councilor Mel Ocampo said to GMA News.

The vendor's niece and one of the people she worked with have been classified as persons under investigation for COVID-19 showed by Manila City Health Office.

Authorities said they will disinfect the establishment but still the market will remain closed.
