A fight for survival 

Coronavirus has changed all our lives. Yet across South Asia, it is turning them upside down. 

The lockdown in India has seen mass migration from the cities to villages. Pakistan’s healthcare system is creaking under the pressure. Bangladesh’s densely populated urban areas and refugee camps are a hotbed for the virus. Sri Lankans are facing yet another threat to their way of life. 

With many relying on daily income from jobs that now don’t exist, families are in a fight for survival; not knowing where their next meal will come from, caring for elderly and sick family members and trying to keep their children safe.
