With normal business halted, restaurants send food to medical workers
Restaurants in Jing’an District are sending food to the city’s medical workers to support their efforts.
The Laohongsheng restaurant on Wulumuqi Road M. has suffered a great loss in the wake of the novel coronavirus outbreak. But after receiving financial support from Jing'an Properties Co, the restaurant decided to offer free meals to doctors and nurses at the nearby Huahsn Hospital.
Since February 6, Laohongsheng has sent 100 meals per day to the hospital.
Even when most restaurants were shut to prevent cross-infection, district authorities granted Laohongsheng an exception to resume their food deliveries.
Earlier, the time-honored Xinzhenjiang Restaurant sent free lunches to medical workers at the fever clinic in the Huadong Hospital.
The lunch boxes were especially designed by nutritionists. From January 30 to February 1, it sent 225 free meals.
