Kuala Lumpur: With Malaysians stuck at home due to a coronavirus outbreak, food delivery services are increasingly popular -- but one customer has sparked an outcry by sending a helicopter across the country to collect a rice dish. Police are investigating an alleged breach of virus rules after the aircraft landed in Ipoh city to pick up 36 portions of the rice dish and returned to Kuala Lumpur, 180 kilometres (110 miles) away.
