The same gears are not picked up by the sanitation workers too as they fear of contracting the disease. Apart from this, Ahmedabad which is one of the hotspots of COVID-19 in the country with over 6,000 positive cases and 421 fatalities are facing several issues in this regard such as improper disposal of PPE kits and lack of safety gear to families performing the last rites, which further exposes the city to more possible infections.
