Rural India, the new viral flash point 
?The medical services in these urban areas — Mumbai, 
Delhi and Chennai to cite the three major epicentres of the 
epidemic — have been overwhelmed. 
?65% of the c o u n t r y ’ s population is rural. 
?Rural people have been relatively underexposed, with very 
few cases and deaths. 
?Thus, the large, vulnerable majority in rural India is yet to 
feel the heat of this epidemic. 
?Just as importations from other countries through air 
traffic set the stage for the urban blight, importations from 
urban to rural India will set the stage for the rural wave.

terms of rural lives and livelihoods but also 
overall national wealth creation. 
?The rural wave is just beginning while the urban 
wave is about to peak. 
?We find that rural people are going about without 
masks or physical distancing, congregating in 
marketplaces and places of worship.

man, woman and child must wear a cotton cloth 
mask when out of the home, and observe strict 
hand hygiene.
