The third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic is upon us, and Lucknow is seeing a huge increase in daily cases.

During the pandemic, many services have appeared in Lucknow that help facilitate our daily needs without us having to go out. Below we have compiled a list of a few of these services for your convenience.
