Mumbai’s Dharavi slum area is one of the world’s largest slums, the fight against the coronavirus has turned into a struggle to survive.India’s nationwide lockdown, instituted March 25, was one of the strictest in the world. It is set to last until at least May 17. Some restrictions on commerce and movement have been eased in recent weeks, and the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus infection is rising rapidly, with more than 70,000 across the country. Dharavi’s one square mile — about three-quarters the size of New York’s Central Park — is home to nearly a million people, making social distancing a fantasy. It is also a place where the quest to save lives is pitted directly against the need to make a living. India’s lockdown has caused unemployment on a massive scale: More than 100 million people have lost jobs or left the labor force, according to an analysis by economists at Goldman Sachs, and the unemployment rate has shot up to 27 percent.
