Residents of Ho Chi Minh City must maintain 5K measures when visiting supermarkets and grocery stores to buy food and necessities.

As many traditional markets are closed to prevent the pandemic, people have been flocking to supermarkets to buy food such as eggs, meat, fish, and vegetable. Queues are long at supermarkets as people continue to stock up on food for the social distancing period.

To ensure everyone's safety, supermarkets require all customers to queue and comply with 5K measures. Customers are encouraged to buy food in larger quantities and make quick payments.

Many supermarkets have increased inventories to meet the soaring demand. At present, goods are plentiful at supermarkets and prices have been fixed to avoid escalation. Some retailers have also opened mobile sales points to sell food to those who cannot travel to supermarkets. Meanwhile, some large supermarket systems in densely populated areas have handed out coupons for consumers to go shopping on even and odd days.
