He Chun, an IT worker in the city of Suzhou, eastern China's Jiangsu Province, did not expect that her first takeout order since the novel coronavirus outbreak would be from a five-star hotel.

The 30-year-old has been working from home due to the epidemic. When she logged into Eleme, an online food delivery platform, He surprisingly found that a nearby Shangri-La hotel has joined in the take-out business with various menus.

The food delivery platform shows more than 1,600 users have ordered from the Shangri-La hotel.

A Crowne Plaza hotel in Jiangsu's provincial capital Nanjing has also initiated take-out business as they suspended dine-in services. "We have about 20 orders per day for now because it is just getting started, and we'll be patient to get good word of mouth," said Li Xin, a chef of the hotel.
