This lockdown is the highest level of the covid 19 restrictions, which means the Residents must remain inside their homes unless leaving for essential purposes, such as purchasing food, seeking medical care, or working in crucial industries. Nonessential passenger transport, outdoor gatherings of more than two people, and nonessential businesses remain banned. Hundreds of flights have canceled due to insufficient space at quarantine facilities.
For the seafood sections, now all the factories closed due to the extension of the pandemic control. All the factories stopped offer the price, and some pending prices are also invalid now. Ocean Treasure kindly reminds even if you can still receive some offer price, these prices are not reliable since the shipment, and the raw material condition will absolutely change after the extension of the lockdown. So, we suggest waiting until the lockdown is over.
