Due to the re-emergence of Covid-19, municipalitieshave requested restaurants to implement social distancing and promote take-outs rather than dining in. As a result, many have switched to ordering take-outs through mobile apps. Remote ordering platforms became popular and moped deliveries have also been on the rise.

A large number of delivery men have been found waiting at restaurant counters for ordered take-outs.

Many moped “shippers” said they only received around 10 orders for food per day before the pandemic, but the number has more than doubled in the last 2 weeks, and their daily income skyrocketed.

If they also accept taxi services besides food delivery, a moped rider can make about US$34-43 per day. Following healthcare guidelines, they always prepare facemasks, gloves, disinfectant spray, and maintain social distancing when doing delivery.
