Other netizens agreed that it is pretty unusual to see the place so deserted

One person said, “It’s empty. Usually, during the afternoon, it gets so crowded like it could start a fight.”

Kosong beb selalu kalau tengahari dia punya sesak macam nak ajak bergaduh

“This is true though. Very different from last week. My journey to work just now was so different,” wrote another netizen.

One user even likened the situation to back when the Movement Control Order (MCO) was enforced. She wrote, “This is back during early MCO, it’s the same. Can sense like it’s going to be MCO all over again.”
