PEK Kio Market and Food Centre was closed temporarily on Wednesday (May 25) and Thursday (May 26), for thorough cleaning and disinfection after more than 180 cases of gastroenteritis had been reported in the Owen Road Area over the past week. Samples collected from the food outlets and the stool samples from those affected tested positive for Rotavirus, or gastric flu. However, the cause of the virus outbreak has yet to be discovered. Hawkers hoped the source of the outbreak could be identified to avoid business being affected.
