Dreze further said that because of the country-wide lockdown, social unrest in many parts of India has already started. The country is under a 21-day lockdown as a neighborhood of larger efforts to curb spreading of coronavirus infections. “The unrest has already started. as an example , many communities have started barricading themselves against outsiders,” Dreze said. Outsiders, including doctors , are harassed in various places. In Rajasthan, a flour truck was looted. All this is often often just a trailer,” he added.
