Restaurant chains KFC and Pizza Hut started testing special "contactless" delivery in China.
Brands restaurant chains KFC and Pizza Hut have started to test special "contactless" delivery in China to avoid the possibility of virus spread. The customer can choose a particular option when ordering and pick up the order at a specific location, while the courier will observe the process from a distance of at least 3 meters.
"The health and well-being of our employees and customers is our top priority, and new innovative services will help reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission from person to person and protect our employees and customers," Yum China said in a statement. The video posted by the company shows a courier on a moped meeting the customer, then departing at a safe distance and waiting for the customer to pick up his order.
Also, as agreed, couriers can leave their orders in pre-agreed places near their homes and offices. According to established delivery rules, KFC and Pizza Hut couriers in China are also required to wear masks and disinfect hands and boxes of orders after each visit to customers. At the same time, "contactless" delivery of orders is also tested at restaurants of both chains. As of February 4, the number of people infected reached 17,400, and it was found that the virus could be transmitted from person to person at a distance of fewer than 2 meters.
