Ride-hailing firm DiDi provides free medical transport across 14 Chinese cities

Chinese ride-hailing app, DiDi, has provided free transportation services to 23,680 medical workers in China across 14 cities, including Wuhan, Xiamen, Beijing and Shanghai.

Over 100,000 drivers across the nation have applied to join the special medical fleets.

The fleets were initially launched in Wuhan to provide transportation services to medical staff and citizens with special-needs amid the city’s public transport lock-down.

Service stations were set up in 157 cities across China to distribute free masks and disinfectants, as well as to assist drivers to install plastic dividers in their vehicles to ensure driver safety and help them maintain their normal course of service.
