i went out and walked some up to the border when i asked him what their idea was of aspires. and what happened, they said, and what does it matter? because we don't have food, we don't have water, we don't have any way to ski. so whatever it is for us, this is the problem, not that. and some of them were pretty angry about the fact that he said, why didn't they just stop the rich people in the airports, one day, the ones were bringing it in, widen to just locked them in. and let us, not all of them are hostile to more be gone. so one of them said, maybe nobody told him about us. you know, maybe he doesn't know about. and that was really heartbreaking. the government did announce a $22600000000.00 relief package to hand out cash and food assistance to the poor. however, it was only implemented 45 days after the lockdown began,

made clear what was already obvious, all that for so many indians, there was no possibility of staying indoors or physically distancing themselves on a train platform in eastern state of b ha, a video was filmed of a child, unaware his mother was lying dead of starvation. they just made it back to dallas state. after days of cross country travel. and then there were the videos of people being ill treated by authorities. some of that seem to be nothing more than power trips like police in the state of who to per day punishing people for violating locked down rules. when in fact being out on the street was the only place they could be. and this video taken at the border between 2 states, showing people being hosed down in diluted bleach as some sort of disinfection process after they traveled days to get their, their thought bed, who is in elect a hobby killer in thanks. and all of that being our field that i've got women and
6:44 am
the silver that all calling like this. and this is all with her mission by the this is bob already we are getting a human being said like, really human, real thinking. that is mora, somebody gravity for someone to think of just losing not be blue, as there were dea, inanimate objects that speaks a lot to how people think of other people who they think goes on below distinction and aren't any. when you speak about people thinking of others as being below their station, you are referring to the cost system, right? the sort of social classification of people, the engine that runs in the social hierarchy, which is given sort of divine sanction cost. so you do have a society which preventative dividing mastery and then really kind of green hierarchy to people who are total and the idea of
6:45 am
inequality. any nicotine, you somehow institutionalize this in order to have someone to chris and someone to be oppressed by. that is, what does beds, water campaigns for the rights of india's legions of manual scavengers. these people who physically enter and clean law sections of the country, sewage system, often without protective gear. he has an up close view of what it means to be a dollar or the lowest, a lower cost in the grip of append to pay for the more of the value of the way in the cycle. if you're doing what we got going on and doing the actually the annotation that's coming, the cleaning of the hot sun every day. you know, be when it can flow. there is no good. there is no, there is nothing like but we are making the same. what's going on?
6:46 am
so we will bring them into that day. one of them will be division and he wrote a lot of this is our bra must be up in a row, waiting on the 20 when i can i get off b, c, t, c, c, l is not going to be the josephine at martinez is a historian and gender equity activist in spain, i spoke with her to understand how coded and inequality work in an economic and social context. completely different to that of a country like india. but we began with some of the issues that have played out similarly in both countries. for him and mostly in colorado,
6:47 am
who asked me what you see national what amount what amount of what a handler. so, i mean maybe not believe it but i know the time you know, people are gone. we see, let's see that let's it out of
6:48 am
the can then it was really hammered home, some of the realities of the imbalances and divisions that exist in our societies. for instance, laid upon the hierarchy of label divisions between blue color and white color, non essential, essential workers of politics, gender women form a vital segment of front line workers. according to the un, they make up 70 percent of the global health and social care workforce. recent data from italy, spain in the united states, showed a $2.00 to $3.00 times higher rate of cobit infection among female health care workers compared to their male counterparts. women also perform more than 75 percent of unpaid care work, and almost 80 percent of domestic work locally affect largely dominated by migrant workers and other marginalized groups of color match the gus
6:49 am
in finance on a lot of that or to the news that are some critics, how much would it cost to put it in and that is that it will, it will cost me see if you get a government decrease declared these people essential workers, didn't they? why did it stuck backlash? now they don't notice in the cells don't
6:50 am
allow me to talk to chose that way. people who don't necessarily inequality leaves the shop imprint wherever it's, it's measurable and it's also known that people take the city of bos, alona, where residence of poor neighborhoods have been 6 to 7 times more likely to contract the virus than those in wealthy areas. in april, the rate of infection in the up market area of sunk, gervase was $77.00 per 100000 inhabitants. meanwhile, just 6 kilometers away. look at this. the rate of infection was $533.00. in our prep, the oprah got and son kit had said delva jets working class settle at thomas just outside of bos, alona, the rate of infection was even higher still at 6 104701 per 100000 inhabitants
6:51 am
respectively. manual franco is a professor of epidemiology and public health at the university of color and madrid, and then john hopkins school of public health in the u. s. i asked him what might explain the differences between the neighborhoods. one of them is, what is the quality of housing and the amount of people living with you was in the same household unit where we know so far is that if you live in a small slant 56 people, it's pretty much impossible to keep the social distancing than we are right now, encouraging people to guess the way our cities are segregated. unorganized nowadays, and he doesn't matter if it's madrid, barcelona london or new york is some people get to choose or to pick where they want to live and others don't get to choose. and that's because of also lawyers, historical reasons, it's not a fancy area with that. with lots of renewal, then it's the perfect place where low income people and new immigrants are going to come on the list. so at the end, you have an, a mixture of low income,
6:52 am
elderly people with immigrants from different countries of origin getting to live in these areas where we are seeing high rates of infection. again, that amount get the money went up. and it's a lot of, you know, so lemme should. yeah, well, you know, on the left less it, helena is sallied, i eat a champion, no less young mas now or last month, but it will turn familiar bonus. it be when my shortest will love took us. we need to get to my we tend to think photograph the picture out in one moment, the life stuff. that's not the reality of our students are vibrant and one of the
6:53 am
highly dynamic and those dynamics sometimes means for the better sometimes means or worse. the real social distance in terms of health, in general, and very particular in this demick. how are we stratified and how are we layered and organized? and then our societies at the end of 2017, the world health organization issued a report in which it said, at least half of the world's population, cannot obtain essential health services. and each year, large numbers of household being pushed into poverty because they must pay for health care out of their own pockets. what the w h o report was pointing to was that preexisting inequalities be they poverty, race, or gender? they will compounded by the fact that the systems and institutions that are meant to provide a safety net for the public have been chipped away at for decades. making them increasingly unable to provide the services they were created to deliver the last
