Challenges

Physical Distancing

The need for physical distancing and the threat of the spread of Coronavirus has hampered evacuation and relief efforts. There is a fear that with physical distancing norms now difficult to follow, families in the affected areas have become more vulnerable to the Coronavirus

Limited Shelters

Many people living in the quarantine centres had to take shelter in school buildings to survive the cyclone. With migrant workers returning home and families affected by the cyclone both living in common shelters, children and elderly are at a higher risk of exposure to the virus.

Sanitation and Hygiene

The cyclone accompanied by heavy rain damaged homes and also the toilets within them. Limited functional toilets push people to defecate in the open increasing the risk of water and vector-borne diseases.

Gender-based violence

Men, women, and children share a common space in the shelters, this puts women and children at a greater risk of sexual harassment. Pregnant women, lactating mothers and adolescent girls too, have to share the same space with the others.
