Moscow businessman tries life as deliveryman during pandemic

MOSCOW (AP) — A Russian businessman has become a deliveryman amid the nation’s partial economic shutdown due to the coronavirus. Sergey Nochovnyy said he hasn’t lost his business but made the move to “look at life from another angle” and avoid being locked at home amid the epidemic. Authorities in the Russian capital have ordered most residents except those who work in vital industries to stay home in an effort to stymie the spread of the coronavirus outbreak. Only visits to nearby stores and pharmacies are allowed, and the lockdown has spurned the demand for delivery services. The 38-year-old Nochovnyy says he walks an average of 12 miles (20 kilometers) a day to deliver food.
