Amid the worsening COVID-19 pandemic in Taiwan, the government has called on everyone to stay home, leaving many fearful of heading out to buy groceries or meals.
However, a small businessman quickly adapted to the times and was recently revealed to have a truckload of instant noodles, cookies, drinks, and more for local residents to purchase anywhere, anytime.
According to local Chinese-language media, a social media user recently shared a picture of the truck explaining that he lived in the mountainous areas of Chiayi County, making heading outside a bit of a hassle, especially during these semi-lockdowns times.
He revealed that the small silver lining comes every Tuesday, when a “uni-truck” drives up to his house, allowing many to purchase a week’s worth of foods and drinks.
From the photos shared, social media users can see that the truck has an abundance of snacks, beverages, instant noodles and also holds a refrigerator so that even in the summertime of June, customers can still purchase ice-cold milk and juice.
The “mobile convenience store” immediately received praise online with many praising the man for his quick thinking, adding that it was the perfect solution during the pandemic as people do not need to be crowded in a tiny store to get their necessities.
Some also reminisced about better times, with one social media user commenting that it reminded them of the old “bread trucks.”
With the local COVID-19 cases surging past 10,000 on Friday, many could take advantage of this truck to limit the possibility of getting infected, social media users said.
