Coronavirus: Precautionary guidelines issued for food delivery

Sindh Food Authority has issued precautionary guidelines for food delivery at home .

According to the Sindh Food Authority statement, employees should be careful and ensure cleanliness during food delivery; sterile should spray on the food pack should.

Sindh Food Authority has cautioned that the restaurant or hotel food delivery staff must wash hands with warm water and soap.

The Sindh Food Authority has further directed that the person delivering the food should not be more than 55 years of age; a food mask is required for the food delivery employee.

Sindh Food Authority cautioned in its declaration that  delivery boy services should not be taken in case of cough, nausea and fever.

It is pertinent to mention here that a pizza delivery boy has tested positive for coronavirus in Delhi, India. Residents of around 72 houses have been asked by the District Magistrate South to remain quarantined.

Twenty more delivery boys are sent to quarantine in Chhattarpur. Sources said that these 20 delivery men came into contact with the boy.

Sources said that the employee does not have a travel history. However, he might have contracted the virus while delivering food to an infected family. Or, he might have contracted COVID-19 at a hospital that he visited earlier.
After the news came out, nearby residents in Hauz Khas and Nagar areas have been asked to self-isolate.

The food company Zomato said that they were not aware of whether the patient had delivered the meal “to a few customers” in Malviya Nagar.

It was stated, “Some of these orders were placed on Zomato. We are not sure whether the rider was affected at the time of delivery,”

“COVID-19 could happen to anyone – and it is near impossible for all of us to completely isolate ourselves, especially when we need outside support for essentials such as food…We believe that none of our riders should and would knowingly keep working if they knew they were infected with COVID-19,”
