Migrant's concerns during COVID19
When the coronavirus outbreak was new, it did create panic worldwide. In Bengaluru, Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Chest Diseases has a special Coronavirus ward which is screening all those who have returned from a trip overseas and have been put under observation. Those who tested positive have been quarantined. As the issue got bigger, fumigation and sanitization in public places began and the city started seeing people in masks. Very soon, a nation-wide lockdown was announced and people started panic buying, migrant workers started walking back home and some died on their journey. However, the city saw a lot of helping hand come forward to feed and care for the needy.

Women came forward to address the sanitary needs of women in these camps as well and educated them. Public spaces turned into migrant camps as the migrant workers lost their jobs and homes. While the longing to go home existed, they were safe and sound.
