The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown had given way to an acute sense of uncertainty and vulnerability; especially amongst informal sector workers. Informal sector workers in both urban and rural communities lack job security and social security and this had worsened due to the lockdown with many workers losing their jobs.
This study was conducted to assess the specific effects of the COVID-19 virus and subsequent lockdown on domestic workers through parameters such as socio-economic background of the worker, nature of income, ownership/loss of assets and job security; amongst others.
