In a day, on October 8, #Bengaluru registered a whopping 5,121 Covid-19 cases. And it was the third day in a row that the city had ringed in over 5,000 new cases. The constantly surging rise of the infectious disease in the city is worrying for two reasons, say experts. The country though is now only another nation, apart from the USA, where there are over 7 million confirmed cases while the number of deaths has reached 1,08,334.
It's that time of the year when the entire year's hard work bears fruit but this year the potters are left to wonder what the future holds for them as there are no sales. They take loans to help them procure materials and keep them going until this period. The unexpected #Coronavirus has left them hanging. They haven't paid rent and any of their bills and wonder when the electricity connection will be snapped. They have been living off the ration distributed to them by volunteers and other organizations. They hope the government gives them a few days to sell the small idols which will help them breathe.
