KNOW COVID-19 TO SAY NO TO COVID-19

India's Corona Virus Response Must Address Caste and Class Divide

April 27, 2020

How do you discuss self-quarantine with a person sharing a tiny shanty with 10 people in a slum? How do you advise social distancing to a manual scavenger? How do you tell an adivasi, who struggles for one meal a day, to prioritise hand sanitisers? The measures taken by the government are important but coloured with class bias. The article provides context and recommendations to rethink guidelines to move towards more holistic and inclusive approach.

Get us to the finish line of completing a 90-bed hospital for Government of Karnataka

Swasti is setting up a 90 bed modular hospital within the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Chest Diseases, which will function as part of the existing Institute. This facility will be used for care provision for COVID in the coming year and in future will provide care for people who come to this facility; it is right next to 2 other Govt. hospitals (NIMHANS and Sanjay Gandhi Trauma Centre)
