19 Mar, 2020

    Amid the novel coronavirus outbreak, people have been compelled to self-isolate and quarantine themselves to contain the spread of the virus.

    The service provides “healthy and nutrition” food by the Sikh community of the town. Mostly to the people above the age of 65, and quarantined.

     
     

    Taking to Twitter, an associate of the community Harjinder Singh Kukreja said: "Are you 65+ plus? In #Coronavirus isolation? Need support to get food? Sikhs in Slough, UK have come up with Mobile Food Support for the elderly & isolated & are Providing FREE HEALTHY & NUTRITIOUS essentials to help them! Pls share!"

     

    According to reports, on Tuesday, 14 more people were reported to have died after being diagnosed with coronavirus in England, bringing the United Kingdom's death toll at 71.
