In the United Arab Emirates restaurants can only operate via food delivery or drive-through options.
The UAE food and beverage industry is experiencing a downturn in business of around 50%.
Singapore too, despite orginally allowing restaurants to operate, is now moving to a delivery and takeaway only model.
In some countries measures go a step further. India, New Zealand and the Philippines had introduced quite restricted lockdowns, including in foodservice industry - halting all business.
But, in recent days, New Zealand and the Philippines are looking at how to scaleback their lockdowns to allow for food delivery in order to get the foodservice industry operating again.
