Shopping mall finds leather goods covered in mold after lockdown

Malaysia's Metrojaya Center closed on March 18 under restrictions to stop the spread of COVID-19. Leather goods at the mall were left covered in mold after a two-month lockdown.

The region's humid weather without air-conditioning led to the damage. 

As the shop prepared to reopen this week, staff returned to the building and were horrified by the state of the luxury items. Pictures emerged showed how shoes, handbags, belts and wallets all had thick layers of grey and yellow mold on them.
