Coronavirus Lockdown has left us all craving for delicious food. But the recent news has alarmed us from ordering food online. The coronavirus pandemic is spreading rapidly and the best we can do is to stay indoors. The online food delivery was operational to deliver food to people but now it is no safer.
A famous pizza delivery chain in Delhi was functional during the lockdown. A guy that delivers pizza from the Malviya Nagar branch was found coronavirus positive. This news shooked the people and the close contacts were traced.
After that 72 families in Delhi who came in contact with the delivery boy have been under self-quarantine.
“We have found that 72 houses had taken delivery from that outlet and hence everyone has been told to follow precautionary measures and be under self- quarantine,”
The 16 colleagues were also tested for coronavirus and all came negative. The pizza delivery chain is not operating since then.
The infected delivery boy has been admitted in the hospital. All the delivery agents have been informed to follow all precautionary measures to stay safe.
Zomato in an official statement said:
“All the co-workers of the said rider have tested negative and as a precaution, the restaurant where the rider worked has suspended operations,”
