Grab announced today (February 19) that, together with Chubb, it will provide free insurance coverage for drivers and delivery partners who become infected during the COVID 19 outbreak.
As of today, all Grab drivers and delivery partners are automatically insured.
You can request a $ 500 payout if diagnosed between today and March 19, 2020.
Drivers who have volunteered for GrabCare, Grab & # 39; s dedicated 24/7 on-demand service for healthcare workers, are eligible for a $ 1,000 cashout upon diagnosis.
The GrabCare service was first piloted on February 14 to help health professionals who worked hard on the front line of the coronavirus outbreak.
Regardless, Grab and other taxi companies in Singapore also provide financial support for drivers who experience a downturn in business during this period.
Working with the government, these companies offer qualified drivers $ 20 a day for three months.
Grab and Gojek drivers must complete at least 200 jobs per month between October and December 2019 to qualify for the relief.
