Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation: Staying safe in the slums

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), a non-profit organisation, released a music video to encourage people in the Mumbai Dharavi slum to remain safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Summary Statement

In urban slums such as Mumbai's Dharavi, social distancing is impossible. One million people live within an area of just 2.1 square kilometres. A single water tap is touched by 200 people during the course of the day. Livelihoods depend on daily wage earners working outdoors.

The only way to limit the spread of COVID-19 is for residents to stay isolated and adopt restrictive social behaviours.

Already reeling from a first wave of infections, a failure to control the spread in Dharavi would result in unimaginable consequences for India.
