Uber today revealed it was launching two new services for users that essentially turn Uber‘s drivers into item couriers — and in both cases, it seems the intent is to help drivers who are struggling thanks to the coronavirus.

Uber offers as an example pet food and over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, and I can imagine several other use cases of things you want ...
