I've seen articles like this now for multiple countries concerning Healthcare workers. These landlords should all be denied Healthcare for the rest of their lives.

Which will be very short.

I can't wrap my head around how big a catastrophe it will be when things really take root in India.  The Johns Hopkins dashboard says India's only reported 1071 cases, and 29 deaths, with 100 recoveries.  Given the population density, a weakening, but still prevalent caste system, and the reduced-but-still-not-zeroed "throw corpses in the river" traditions?  It's going to be cataclysmic.

Short term ban on evicting medical and hospital staff without extreme cause, punishment is forfeiture of the rental apartment and all rent for the duration of the crisis.

/Or sentence them to be hospital janitors for the next two months if they're belligerent.

The evictions might be morally or legally wrong, but aren't necessarily irrational.

Hypothetically, say you lived with your 80 year old parents, and the three of you were quarantining in your home and yard as long as possible, but you had a tenant who rented a room, shared the same kitchen with you, defecated in the same yard as you, and was going out to a crowded workplace every day. That could add an enormous infection risk to your family. Long term, the outcome may be the same, unless you can afford to quarantine until you're all vaccinated, maybe a year or two away. But even if it's delaying the inevitable, evicting the tenant doesn't strike me as a superstitious or paranoid instinct.

One source of Fark articles that we can always count on is landlords.

I think the proper term is "Spicy British"

If it's anything like Italy, many members of the public can expect health care workers to evict them from hospitals in a couple weeks.

Yeah, right. Like stepping over someone dying in a gutter in India will somehow be different. It's called "Tuesday" there.

Handling sick and dead bodies was always relegated to the pariah caste.  This is nothing new.

Indian society cannot contain this virus.  Too crowded.  Too many poor.  There will be nothing to stop it.

GungFu: That's so farked up. I'm in a landlord's group on Fb, and someone posted a story about a tenant being told to leave their lodgings before the start of the non-eviction period the govt are implementing. The tenant works for the NHS and their landlord was a live-in and she so wanted the tenant out as soon as possible.

Hell in a basket times.


Tenant Unions and rent strikes are more important than ever; I think it's high time we put leeches in their place.

They live in India. When the British left, they kept the name India. They chose to be Indians, unlike the First Peoples of North America. Indian (Dot) is okay, Indian (feather)? - not so much.

/ @1790, a French immigrant ancestor near Kaskasia in the New France lands married a Native American woman of the Kickapoo people, one of the peoples of the Illinois Confederation - my ancestors.
// Lately, the tribe has been spelling it Quikapu. (Makes my eyes twitch but since I am like 1/264th, I don't even qualify to get my parking validated on the Reservation, let alone have a say in the spelling.)
/// When I think about them, I wish I could stop thinking about Kickapoo Joy Juice from "L'il' Abner."
