At The Mercy Of Another Invisible Killer
35 years ago in Bhopal, a vast cloud of toxic MIC gas leaked without warning from a Union Carbide pesticides factory. Thousands suffocated to death. Over half a million are left with permanent injuries that greatly heighten their vulnerability to Covid-19. As the majority present multiple co-morbidities medical workers insist that they are at least five times more vulnerable to Covid-19.
Community Mobilisation Plan
On the day of Bhopal’s first Covid-19 death some of the poorest people on earth, lacking adequate protective equipment, testing kits, financial or other resources agreed a demanding and dangerous plan of action designed to monitor and suppress the spread of the virus within their own communities.
NGO & Local Govt. Action Plan
Six weeks after survivor organisations first sounded the alarm, on May 3rd Bhopal authorities agreed to comprehensively support their initiatives with a mass program of monitoring, testing and treatment for those most at risk due to existing co-morbidities.
