Food delivery app Zomato has launched a number of initiatives, including offering loans to its restaurant partners and free subscription extensions, to help its UAE customers survive the financial impact of the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak.

“From loans for restaurants, and funds to cover lost earnings for delivery partners, to voluntary staff pay cuts to conserve cash flow, Zomato has moved quickly to activate a number of initiatives to help support the food and beverage industry and the public alike through the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic,” the company said in a statement.
