In India, the world's second-largest country by population, about one lakh female health workers have been revealed to work on a coronavirus protection scheme for just 30 rupees without protective clothing and equipment.
In India, the government has entrusted Lady Health Workers with the task of protecting Asha workers from house to house with regard to the Coronavirus.
Even before Asha workers worked on home-based health plans before the Coronavirus, they typically collect data on family planning, newborns' health, and vaccination in relation to other health plans.
But now the government has entrusted all Asha workers with the responsibility to deal with the Coronavirus and has been instructed to go home not only to identify Corona suspects but also to inform people about the outbreak.
But these Asha members, who went from house to house with precautionary measures, were not provided with protective clothing and protective equipment, nor were they being paid the same wages as any daily wage worker.
According to the BBC, 90,000 Lady Health Workers (Asha members) across India are performing face masks, protective clothing and even without gloves.
