In the city of Jaipur, there are large slum areas where migrant workers commonly live due to the proximity of these slums to the Main Railway Station.
There, migrant communities live in densely populated, unsanitary and precarious housing with limited access to clean water and electricity.
Their reality makes social distancing and safe health measures near impossible.
As a result, many migrants are returning to work in crowded areas as rickshaw drivers or labouring on construction sites - despite the serious risks of contracting COVID-19. Whatever they do, they are at risk, and without external support, their situations will likely deteriorate very quickly.
