How is COVID-19 Affecting India? Georgian Citizen About the Virus Outbreak
Georgian citizen Tamara Lashauri lives in Delhi, India for three years with her Indian husband and a child. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, she has been staying at home which is very unusual for a crowded and active city such as Delhi.
Like everyone, Tamara says that the coronavirus outbreak has changed everything.

"The government has halted all air traffic and everyone who has been traveling abroad for the last one month, are placed under quarantine.

Approximately 700 people are infected
and 14 dead because of the virus here. However, Indian doctors are very qualified and experienced which eases the worry among people. No one goes out in the streets without an emergency reason, but if one does so, the police are allowed to kick you with stick on the legs or impose some sanctions.

When asked about homeless people, she answered:

" No one leaves in the streets here. Everyone has a little place a bungalow for themselves, where they sleep and prepare food. Also, the police distributes food to such people so that they do not go out and get in touch with others. People have this idea that we do not have gas, water or light in India. Of course, there are poor people here but they also work somewhere. For instance, they clean houses or wash clothes. Moreover, we have no shortage of face-masks and sanitizers in Delhi."

It is supposed that the coronavirus will disappear as soon as the temperature gets warmer but as it turns out it is not true based on India's example.

"Now it is 30 degrees here, it is very hot but the virus continues to spread. I do not know why, but since the virus outbreak, no one eats chicken meat here. Everyone knows that it is not spread through chicken meat, but they still do not eat it.

We have a lot of religious celebrations here, but now all the religious places have been closed. Although the celebration called "Holi" was still held, the families celebrated it at home."- Tamara Lashauri said.
