The country is facing its worst epidemic crisis in recent times as COVID-19 cases in the country surpassed 1,000-mark and the death toll has risen to 27. Along with all the infections, as well as the deaths, there has also been an unprecedented rise in unemployment across the daily wage sector and the unorganized sector, which has led to massive migration of the underprivileged people, from bigger cities to countryside.
This surge has unfortunately also ensured the inaccessibility of these masses to things of basic necessities as enumerated above. While, the governments across the country are making their own provisions to reach out to these people, all IYC cadre across Vidhan Sabha level, district level, state level and national level are working relentlessly to get relief to the affected group of people, while following all governmental guidelines regarding social distancing and other precautions.
