IPOH, Nov 13 — Businesses in some parts of Ipoh, which had once hoped to bounce back after lockdown restrictions were eased two months ago, now seem ready to throw in the towel following the re-implementation of the conditional movement control order (CMCO). 

A recent check by Malay Mail showed that most tourist spots around Ipoh are empty, with many restaurants and shops in the vicinity closed.

A 69-year-old worker, who only wanted to be known as Ooi, at Restoran Wong Koh Kee, said that business has been badly affected by the latest travel restrictions. 

“We’re just waiting to go bankrupt. Our business has dropped by about 90 per cent,” he told Malay Mail when met at the restaurant on Concubine Lane here.
