PANDEMIC WITHOUT CLASS

COVID 19 is a pandemic which does not select its victims based on their societal class or achievement.

My country was not ready and they wouldn't have been ready if not because the initial victims are people of class.

It is notorious fact that if you don't have International passport and Visa you will never go beyond the borders of your country but without International Passport and Visa the less privilege have become victims of the global pandemic. WHAT IS THE FATE OF THE RURAL SETTLERS IN COMBATING THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC?

In a particular state in my country strategic locations were opened recently for screening of COVID 19 but is only in the urban area, then I ask what is the fate of the people in rural areas who don't have access to basic amenities and medical care? Is it their fault that they cannot afford the luxurious life in the urban areas? We are created equally but we don't have equal right to life.
