Corona Virus: When the Pandemic and the Cyclone Cyclone Come Together

Corona Virus: When the Pandemic and the Cyclone Cyclone Come Together



During the time of Corona crisis, you must have kept listening to such instructions of 'Physical Distancing'. But think, if there is a storm, flood or earthquake, will these rules be followed? Obviously, it is almost impossible to follow the rules of physical distancing during a natural disaster.

The International Federation of Red Cross and other agencies providing humanitarian aid say that people facing displacement due to bad weather and natural disasters are not able to follow the rules of physical distancing even during the Corona transition.

The International Federation of Red Cross Emergency Co-ordinator Marshall Macavaré in East Africa told the BBC that people displaced by natural disasters are unable to maintain physical distancing.

"In such a difficult situation, people are forced to violate the Kovid-19 protocol and guidelines," he said.

The BBC has spoken to some people living in areas affected by bad weather and natural disasters.


India

38-year-old Subrata Kumar Padhihari, who lives in Odisha, is worried. Indian officials are in alert mode because of the danger of cyclone offenses. Cyclone infestation has caused huge losses in many parts of West Bengal and Odisha.

Subrata's village is about 40 km from the sea. The house in which he lives with his wife, three daughters and mother has been badly shaken because of the Cyclone Phani that came last year. Now they are afraid that their house may be razed due to the inflection.

Even if their house survives, they are afraid that the authorities will ask them to leave their village and go to a safe place. Subrata is afraid that the situation may get worse this time.

He said, "I am afraid that we will be taken to nearby schools. These are the same schools which have been converted into quarantine shelters because of Kovid-19. There are not many shelters in our village. That means that we May have to live with those who are already corona infected. "

Siddharth Srinivas, head of food and climate policy at Oxfam Asia, told the BBC, "West Bengal is already grappling with cases of Covid-19 infection. In such a situation worries about preparations to avoid cyclones. The past is further heightened. In the state governments used to take people to schools and public buildings at the time of disaster, but now it will not be appropriate due to covid-19 infection. "
