Isolation is also hard when space is constrained and rooms are often shared, said Annie Wilkinson, a research fellow at research organization the Institute of Development Studies.”Slums’ informal or illegal status often undermines both the collection of data and the implementation of policies to improve health,” she said.”There is a real risk that the impacts on the urban poor will be considerably higher than elsewhere,” she said.’Alarming’In Hong Kong, where thousands of people who have recently visited China or may have had contact with patients, are confined to their homes under quarantine orders, it is particularly risky for those who live in partitioned flats.These units generally have poor ventilation and drainage, and residents are more vulnerable because of the shared kitchen and toilets, said Choyu Cheung, a community organizer at the Society for Community Organization, a non-profit.”This epidemic highlights how alarming the housing situation is in Hong Kong,” Cheung said.While the Hong Kong government has announced handouts to tackle the outbreak, some public housing has been converted into quarantine centers, thereby reducing an already constrained supply of public housing.In South Asia, authorities have reported rising numbers of coronavirus cases.In India, at least 4 million people are homeless in urban areas, and more than 70 million live in informal settlements, said Housing and Land Rights Network (HLRN), a non-profit.In addition to providing emergency accommodation and healthcare services, authorities must enforce a moratorium on evictions, said Shivani Chaudhry, executive director at HLRN.”Under the current circumstances, demolishing homes and rendering people homeless would result in increasing their vulnerability to contracting and spreading the virus,” she said.In Delhi, city officials are sanitizing homeless shelters, and providing tent shelters until the end of the month, said Bipin Rai, a member of the Delhi Urban Slum Improvement Board.”The government is closely monitoring the needs of homeless citizens. There will be no evictions for now,” he said. Millions of homeless people and those living in informal settlements across Asia are at heightened risk of contracting the coronavirus due to their dire living conditions, housing experts said on Tuesday.The coronavirus has infected about 180,000 people worldwide and killed more than 7,000, according to a Reuters tally.While the data does not show how many lived in slums, the high density of settlements and meager facilities raises their vulnerability, said Cecilia Tacoli, a researcher at the London-based International Institute for Environment and Development. “Proximity is an important driver of infection, and low-income settlements in many cities of the Global South are very densely populated,” she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.”Given that new infectious diseases will likely continue to spread rapidly into and within cities, low-income settlements need more effective infrastructure,” she said.Globally, about 1.8 billion people live in inadequate housing and homelessness, according to the United Nations.While handwashing is a basic precaution against the coronavirus, about 40% of the world’s population do not have such a facility with water and soap at home, according to UNICEF, the UN’s children’s fund.

David Luiz had a night to forget as Arsenal were comprehensively beaten at Manchester City (Picture: Getty)Dutch legend Ruud Gullit says he’s never understood the hype around David Luiz and has labelled the error-prone Arsenal defender ‘overrated’ in the wake of his horror show performance against Manchester City.Mikel Arteta started Luiz on the substitutes bench for Arsenal’s first game back but was forced to introduce the Brazilian after Pablo Mari suffered an ankle injury midway through the first half at the Etihad. Luiz was largely to blame for Raheem Sterling’s strike on half-time and the centre-back’s night soon got even worse after he clumsily fouled Riyad Mahrez inside the penalty area in the 51st minute. ‘I just can’t understand it!’ – Ruud Gullit rips into ‘overrated’ David Luiz amid Arsenal struggles Advertisement Metro Sport ReporterMonday 22 Jun 2020 9:09 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link2.5kShares Luiz was given his marching orders just after half-time at the Etihad (Picture: Getty)Kevin De Bruyne made no mistake with the resulting spot-kick after Luiz’s sending off and Phil Foden added a third at the death to seal all three points for City.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTLuiz’s red card meant he was suspended for Arsenal’s trip to Brighton which also ended in defeat to add to what has been a miserable return to the Premier League for Arteta’s side. Discussing Luiz’s struggles on Ziggo Sport, former AC Milan and Chelsea star Gullit said: ‘Yes, David is not doing well.‘I think he’s an overrated player, really. When he played in midfield I thought he was reasonable, but then there was already discussion about what he actually is as a player. ‘But he preferred to play as a defender… Well, we all remember the match between Brazil and Germany (7-1 at the 2014 World Cup). I just can’t understand it!‘Most clubs have done away with him, but he keeps coming back somewhere.’ Gullit has never understood the hype around Luiz (Picture: Getty)Luiz accepted full responsibility for Arsenal’s defeat to City during his post-match interview with Sky Sports and admitted he should have made an earlier decision over his contract situation, with his current deal nearing its end. ‘It’s not the team’s fault. It was my fault,’ the Brazil international said. ‘I take the decision to play, I should take a decision in the last two months but I didn’t. ‘Today, I think the team did well, especially after the ten men. ‘The coach is amazing, all the players did amazing, it was my fault. ‘I should have taken a different decision in the last two months, and I didn’t.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?
