Streets around the Indian capital Delhi have been filled with people walking to reach their villages in neighbouring states.

This comes after President Modi announced a complete lockdown of the country on March 24 to curb the spread of coronavirus.

Most of the those migrating are daily workers who are out of work due to the lockdown, who are now trying to make it to their viallges in neighbouring states.

Many say they are leaving the capital because of lack of job and money to live on during the lockdown.

In the absence of money and jobs, they are desperate to reach their villages. Some found government-run buses to reach home and others just continued to walk.
