1) The Basirhat Municipal Corporation has been spreading COVID-19 awareness among the people with public announcements amidst reports of the return of migrant workers, reports Sufia Khatun, a social worker at Teghoria Institute for Social Movement, a community-based organization. But many workers who have returned, are facing stigma from their communities, with some who have even tested negative for coronavirus.

2) The absence of stable electricity in Kachua gram panchayat has severely and expectedly affected the bank work with many people unable to withdraw or even check their balance. Jinnatun Nahar, a social worker for Seth Bagan Mahila Sangha, a community-based organization states that the bank has been doing their work while running on a generator but with fluctuations in electricity, they are unwilling to even update the passbooks of their customers, let alone help their customers to make transactions.
