He added that the food and drinks service sector had received the lion's share of the returnable advances and almost all the other measures that have been implemented.

He also clarified that the reopening of the sector that does not extend to businesses within indoor shopping malls and other enclosed spaces up until May 14, though they will still be able to offer take away and delivery services.
