A small coastal region in Kerala, named Chellanam, is stuck between the virus and the sea.
The area in under a strict lockdown after nearly 200 people in the village got infected with Covid-19. But now, tidal erosion has worsened their situation.
People are sleeping on the rooftops of their houses since going out will make them vulnerable to the virus and staying in will literally drown their homes.
The locals have been demanding a proper fortification to reduce the damage caused by tidal erosion.
A sea wall would provide necessary protection against coastal erosion and flooding from the waves.
But it seems like the government has been successfully pushing this matter under the rug.
The fishermen in the region are the ones suffering the most, who were the sole warriors during the the deluge in 2018 that Kerala faced.
The area lacks proper disaster management.
If the government doesn't act swiftly, the village might soon go underwater.
