Coronavirus: Uber and Deliveroo offer NHS free trips and food

Ride hailing giant Uber and takeaway firm Deliveroo are offering hundreds of thousands of free trips and meals to NHS staff fighting the coronavirus. Under its offer, Uber said NHS workers could claim up to 10 car rides or cycle trips per week and five meal vouchers. Earlier in March, Uber and Deliveroo both said they would pay workers for 14 days if they fell sick, as long as they could provide sick notes. "Greg Howard, a Deliveroo rider and the secretary of the IWGB's couriers and logistics branch, said:"It's great that Uber and Deliveroo are assisting some front line workers, but its own workers are still being failed by the companies. In a statement, Uber said it was providing financial assistance to "Anyone who drives or delivers with Uber and is diagnosed with Covid-19 or placed in individual quarantine by a public health authority due to their risk of spreading Covid-19. This assistance is now available worldwide."
