NONTHABURI – The Public Health Ministry has launched a campaign for hygienic habits among food deliverymen whose number is soaring while people are working at home amid coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) concerns.
Deputy Prime Minister/Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul launched the “Clean Together” campaign that involved food delivery firms. Under the campaign, deliverymen working for the firms were told to wear face masks and regularly wash their hands.
Dr Danai Theewanda, deputy director-general of the Health Department, said many people became food deliverymen because such firms were recruiting more workers. He estimated the present number of local deliverymen at 200,000. (TNA)
