The current situation of India amid the pandemic is one we will never forget. People are dying, we have a shortage of beds and oxygen, the panic is inevitable and justified. Yes, the only precaution we could have taken was to wear a mask and maintain social distancing and that defying attitude has brought us to this stage. If you are a patient or you know someone who has fallen prey to COVID 19 and is under home quarantine then food might be an issue for you considering the sealing. So here is a list of some places and some really good samaritans who have started providing simple home-cooked meal specifically for people quarantined. Take a look.

Zomato App

Food apps have become a common phenomenon and many have become dependent on these apps for a regular supply of cooked meals. But amid COVID 19, we have Zomato app which has decided to launch a new emergency delivery feature that is meant to help patients get cooked meals on a priority basis. 

Deepinder Goyal, CEO of Zomato, tweeted on his account which was then shared by the app that "Users can now check the emergency delivery feature when they checkout their order."

This feature is to give priority to the emergency situations, and it prompts the restaurant to prepare the order on urgent basis. Zomato will ensure faster rider assignment and has put in dedicated customer support for the same. The CEO shared that a number of restaurants have pledged to prioritise these orders in their kitchen. "All deliveries to such customers will be contactless by default to ensure the safety of our riders, and subsequent customers. Needless to say, all customers should opt in for contactless deliveries right now," wrote Deepinder Goyal in his tweet.
