Following the government issued directives on social distancing and subsequent lockdown norms released to curb the spread of COVID-19, cure.fit launched its live classes across different workout formats in March to facilitate home-based workouts not just for its members but for the general public at large.
It added “Cult Live Masterclasses” to the mix in early April featuring an impressive line-up of celebrity trainers, actors, sportspersons, and fitness influencers such as Yasmin Karachiwala, Mandira Bedi, Mary Kom, Brett Lee, Vijender Singh, and PV Sindhu.
Zomato And Swiggy
Swiggy has started delivering alcohol in Ranchi after obtaining all of the necessary approvals from the Jharkhand government. Zomato is currently delivering alcohol in Ranchi, Jamshedpur, and Bokaro.
To ensure that it abides by the law while delivering alcohol, the company will be taking measures like mandatory age verification and user authentication to complete deliveries. Age verification can be completed by uploading a scanned government ID and taking a selfie on the app.
