Rumor: Tuangou, or group purchasing, in Shanghai will be suspended tomorrow.

Fact: The team responsible for daily necessities from the COVID-19 Prevention and Control Headquarter in Shanghai told the Shanghai Rumor Buster Platform on Friday that they have not issued such a notice. According to the team, the municipal government has urged local businesses and logistics stations to implement epidemic prevention and control measures and resume operation as quickly as possible.

Local police are currently investigating the source of the rumor, which was being shared on WeChat.

Chen Tong, vice-mayor of Shanghai, said at a news conference on Thursday that the city is striving to solve procurement and distribution problems.

Authorized wholesale markets, distribution centers, e-commerce warehouses and central kitchens that strictly implement prevention and control measures will gradually resume work, Chen said.
