Livelihoods of daily wage earners, labourers, slum dwellers have disrupted massively. Maids, Plumbers, House Help, Rickshaw pullers, street-side vendors, labours and many more are hard-hit. Almost all have lost their jobs. Most of them are migrants and are caught completely unprepared and without a source of income and stuck in the city with limited movement. They have very little knowledge and a lot of misinformation about covid-19. Most of the information available on WhatsApp and Media is too technical for them to understand and lots of rumours and panic among them and they are also spreading rumours to others.
