Coronavirus: Huge crowds as India lockdown sparks mass migration

Streets around the Indian capital, Delhi, have been filled with people walking to reach their villages in neighboring states.

Most of them are daily-wage workers who are now out of work after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a complete lockdown of the country on the 24th of March to halt the spread of corona virus.

In the absence of money and jobs, they are desperate to reach their villages. Some found government-run buses to reach home and others just continued to walk.
