Hanoi will restrict motorbike shippers’ timings to between 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day, starting Monday, while requiring continued compliance with all pandemic prevention and safety measures.

All shippers, accordingly, will have to furnish a certificate with negative PCR or rapid antigen test results in line with health ministry regulations.

The timing restrictions are needed because the motorbike delivery service is hard to control and carries the risk of further spreading the coronavirus, officials said.

Hanoi has allowed delivery people from supermarkets, e-commerce platforms and postal services but not from ride-hailing companies like Grab, Be and Gojek since July 24.

Hanoi has undergone several social distancing orders since late July. It has recorded over 3,700 infections in the ongoing outbreak that hit the nation late April.

City authorities have said that they would extend strict lockdown orders in most parts of the city after September 6.
