Advisory for Quarantine of Migrant Workers

April 17, 2020

This is an advisory from the Ministry of Home Affairs is in light of the recent large-scale movement of migrant labourers from cities to their place of origin. The advisory is for health officials and administrators on how to manage exposure to COVID-19 through surveillance and quarantine of workers who have stayed back, are in transit or have reached their place of residence


Accelerating vaccinations for millions of vulnerable people across India

VaxNow is bringing together the Government, Private Sector Organizations, Community leaders, NGOs and the Media to accelerate the vaccination of vulnerable people in Karnataka, Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Bihar. These partners will collaborate to reach the unreached through an agile, geographically contextualized plan which will help overcome barriers for vulnerable communities. The criteria for selecting these communities is: people with the highest access barriers, the highest chance of contracting COVID and people living in overcrowded places.
Migrant workers from peri-urban and rural parts of the country who migrate to large cities constitute a sizable segment of urban population across the country. During the COVID outbreak and subsequent lock-down across India, most have chosen to return home. Large congregations of migrant workers in bus stations and at state borders could expose them to COVID-19. They can also carry this infection to far flung rural areas.
