Impact of COVID-19 on Platform Based Workers

This podcast ist part of the series 'COVID-19 and the City': As India went into a lockdown, for many of us the question was "Who would now do the delivery?, "How do we move around without Uber or Ola?", "What about our groceries?". But less than 6 days into the lockdown, some platform companies were slowly returning to work. As these platforms are changing our world, the COVID-19 outbreak has made further visible that platform workers are now a key part of keeping the city up and running.
