Buffet restaurants in Hanoi went livestream Monday afternoon on social networks to sell fresh seafood before they close Tuesday as a Covid-19 safety measure.

Thirty minutes after knowing that a buffet restaurant chain was selling fresh seafood, Dung of Ha Dong District got to one of its outlets to buy big sea crabs caught in the southern province of Ca Mau for VND320,000 ($13.93) a kilogram, but they had already been sold.

The restaurant’s staff said they received some 80 orders soon after going livestream.

A buffet restaurant on Nguyen Chi Thanh Street also sold seafood online. Hundreds of orders were placed online, and many people also came to the restaurant directly.

Some other restaurants and cafes announced that they were ready to sell takeaway foods and drinks starting Tuesday.

Hanoi is closing down indoor services at restaurants, cafes and barbershops starting Tuesday amid a rising coronavirus threat, just three weeks after resuming these services. Restaurants and cafés are still allowed to sell takeaways.
