The 115 Bukit Merah View Market & Food Centre became the epicentre of Singapore’s largest open Covid-19 cluster, when a 74-year-old Singaporean who worked at a sundry stall there became the earliest case in the cluster. He had been infected with the coronavirus on June 9.

The market and hawker centre where he worked was subsequently closed from June 13 to 15 for deep cleaning. When more cases started being linked to the cluster — at press time, it had 91 cases — the shutdown was extended to June 26.
