Koyambedu Market May Be Shifted Out
Decision likely at today's meeting of stakeholders; aim is to enforce physical distancing

This comes in the wake of physical distancing norms being flouted at the market. During a meeting with traders' associations on Monday, City Police Commissioner A.K. Viswanathan said the market will have to be closed if four or more persons in the complex test positive for COVID-19.
