Tech-based transport firms like Grab, Now, Be, Gojek and BEAMIN have stopped food delivery and ride-hailing services in Hanoi starting Saturday as the city imposes 15-day social distancing.

However, they still provide on-demand shopping services. Both Grab and Be announced they would transport only essential goods like foodstuffs, medicines and medical equipment.

Meanwhile, AhaMove announced its goods delivery services are still available to fully meet transport demand in Hanoi.

Earlier, in Ho Chi Minh City, tech-based transport companies suspended food delivery services from July 9. Some other localities, including the central city of Da Nang forbid shippers from operating from July 22.

Hanoi on Friday announced a 15-day social distancing order starting 6 a.m. Saturday amid rising coronavirus concerns in both the capital and nationwide.

The city has recorded 884 local Covid-19 cases in the fourth coronavirus wave that struck Vietnam in late April.
