Coronavirus Effect: Zomato adds this clause to ensure safety of people
New Delhi : To enhance the safety measures during the coronavirus pandemic, Zomato has added a new security measure. The users will now be allowed to check the body temperature of the delivery boy which may help in reducing the chances of coronavirus spread.
The experts have mentioned that high body temperature is one of the symptoms of the coronavirus.
The body temperature feature will be available on the order tracking screen. Currently, the new feature covers about 50 percent of Zomato’s daily active delivery partners.
Explained the new body temperature feature
The body temperature of the delivery boy will be checked by the delivery partner during the time of pickup and the food will be handed over to him only after his body temperature will be in the normal range.
The company claims that it is rapidly increasing the number of restaurant partners who are on board with the new initiative.
"As an essential service provider, it is important we take all measures to ensure safe delivery of food. Checking delivery partner’s temperature adds another layer of precaution and we are glad that our restaurant partners have been embracing this feature widely," said Mohit Sardana, COO - food delivery at Zomato.
“We hope to expand it to a larger base of restaurants by next week,” he added.
Last month, the company had launched "contactless delivery".
