Rumor: Express and takeaway delivery services will be suspended in Shanghai.

Fact: According to the Shanghai Municipal Commission of Commerce, delivery services are still operational and there are about 11,000 e-commerce platform riders on duty every day. During this outbreak, takeaway riders play an important role in meeting the public's basic needs. 

As they are essential workers, these individuals will continue to take regular tests.

Starting from April 6, the riders will take a nucleic acid test and an antigen self-test every day. The platforms are required to organize disinfection works, while the stores should apply for a "site QR code" and ensure the health of employees.
