India reels from migrant worker coronavirus exodus

The exodus has raised worries that those returning may spread coronavirus into rural areas, particularly with authorities resorting to cramming people onto buses and into relief camps and homeless shelters. At the weekend in Delhi, migrant workers and their families fought and shoved their way onto buses organised by India’s most populous state, Uttar Pradesh.
