The announcement of a country-wide shutdown in India last week has caused millions of migrant workers to flee major cities, resulting in huge crowds risking coronavirus infection.

The unprecedented 21-day lockdown, which in terms of people is larger than the one seen in China earlier in the year, gave the 1.3 billion citizens less than four hours to prepare, throwing the country into chaos.

With no way to make money, migrant workers who moved to India’s bigger cities from villages to make a living are now desperately trying to return home.
