Pune: Two sex working women and three cart vendor men working in red light area of Budhwar Peth, Pune have been tested corona positive. Shockingly one of the sex working women from this group is 4 months pregnant.
Now all this 5 persons group ha s been sent to Naidu hospital for immediate treatment. But doctors have advised them to take treatment at home and be home quarantined. But the home of these five patients is very small and other family members also stay there. So there is need to set up a separate COVID Care Centre for the red light area and also conduct a test of all people residing in Budhwar Peth.
The sex workers in Budhwar Peth are currently using masks to prevent infection. They think this will stop the disease from spreading while they engage in sex acts. But the reopening of the red light area will be a major health risk to citizens and sex workers.
And so Pune Municipal Corporation and Pune Police must work on this situation immediately and break the chane of Corona positive cases in this area or else the picture in coming days will be dangerous.
