Lakhs of daily wagers are on roads walking and peddling their way to home

Taking note of the situation, doctors have alarmed about the dangers of the situation

  The movement of labourers has triggered fear of community transmission of the Covid-19.

The Noida and Ghaziabad administrations are clueless about handling the situation

Many places have been cleared but many state borders still remain crowded

The government has also provided buses but it turns out to be of not much help

  The number of people migrating is rising each day.

Experts say that an arrangement of buses for these labourers will "increase the spread of coronavirus"

Large gatherings of people has already defeat the purpose of lockdown

Doctors say that this mismanagement will increase the spread of coronavirus in the next few days.

It would have been better to organise camps locally for these people.

Experts say that such situations can trigger community transmission

Since the reverse migration is not going to stop as the number of people is enormous....

...It is difficult to check if any person with symptoms is travelling among the crowd.

Doctors advised, "All migrant workers should wear a mask. While walking in a group or on a bus.

While taking a lift, they should maintain a safe distance from others.

They must avoid travelling with those having fever or cough and report to authorities immediately."

Experts say if one infected person goes in the crowd of thousands the results will be devastating

The pandemic can reach to the small villages where the labourers are heading to.

Administration has failed to sensitize these labourers and inform them about Covid-19.
