JODHPUR, KOMPAS.com – An Indian restaurant is offering a “Covid Curry” and “Mask Naans” as unique solutions for diners who fear of eating out during the coronavirus pandemic.

The restaurant is also hoping that it would be able to win back its customers through its one-of-a-kind offers.

"This has been a really tough time for us and for our entire sector," Yash Solanki, owner of the vegetarian Vedic eatery in the western city of Jodphur, told AFP.

The Indian restaurant serves fried vegetable balls purposefully shaped to look like the “crowned” Covid-19 virus while the accompanying bread is formed like surgical masks.

Solanki said that they had also added, and advertised, that their Covid Curry had extra Indian herbs and spices that are good for people's health.

"Even with recently relaxed curbs, the fear still dominates. People are still very reluctant to eat out," Solanki said.

Almost 800 people are dying daily from coronavirus in the world's second-most populous nation, with around 50,000 new infections reported every 24 hours.

The country has had 1.8 million cases, the third-highest in the world behind the United States and Brazil, and more than 38,000 deaths.
