Daily Wage Labourers, Small Vendors In Trouble Due To Lockdown In West Bengal | COVID-19

 

Many small vendors and daily wage laborers, including the popular hand rickshaw pullers of Kolkata, are struggling for survival in the ongoing lockdown in West Bengal.

However, people in Kolkata are aware that the lockdown was necessary to contain the Coronavirus, and if people follow the SOPs there would be no need for a lockdown.

Many of them live in small 10x10 feet rooms residing 7-10 people, making it difficult to maintain social distancing. One of the instances recorded by our Community Correspondent Aparna Dig also saw one toilet being shared by as many as 18 families in the slums of Kolkata.
