New Delhi [India], April 16 (ANI): After a food delivery boy tested positive for COVID-19 in South Delhi, cooking gas delivery executives in the national capital are taking all precautionary measures to avoid coronavirus spread.
Cooking gas is essential for every house to cook food and the delivery agencies are delivering gas with all precautions regarding coronavirus.

Delivery executive Brajendra Singh said that people are using the online payment method to pay for the cylinders.
"Some persons are still using the old method to pay by cash but they usually put cash on the cylinder or somewhere on the ground from where we then pick it up," he said.
