Residents look out of their windows at the Dharavi slum during a government-imposed nationwide lockdown as a preventive measure against the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus in Mumbai on April 8, 2020. – Amidst the clogged drains and overflowing garbage dumps of Mumbai’s Dharavi — one of Asia’s largest slums — coronavirus fears are growing, and residents say they are powerless to stop the spread of the disease. The warren of narrow alleys in India’s financial capital — made famous by the 2008 Oscar-winning film “Slumdog Millionaire” — is home to around a million people, many of whom work as security guards or domestic workers in upmarket neighbourhoods nearby. The Indian government announced a lockdown across the country last month, ordering citizens to stay home in the hope that this would contain the spread of the virus. But Dharavi’s crowded streets mean social distancing is near impossible for the people who live there — even if they only leave home to buy food.
