HOMELESS AND CORONAVIRUS.

Coronavirus is a virus that started in December of 2019 in WUHAN province of China but before we knew it spread like wildfire and became COVID19 PANDEMIC. Because it spread throughout the world bringing with it,its aftermath. Initially we are not sure what it is but before we know it, it started to massacre and take the lives of so many people. So COVID19 PANDEMIC brought in a different types of homeless people. These are people of middle class and above ,were dragged from their comfort zones to the floor. These people lost their jobs, some of them became sick from COVID19. These people were laid off dive into their savings to survive. But quickly ran out of money. And there were also low income people that lost their jobs.Some of them have no savings and quickly become homeless.

FACTORS THAT LEAD THESE GROUPS OF PEOPLE TO SUFFER FROM HOMELESSNESS INCLUDE:

Forced to move out of their house because it is not conducive.

Divorce: Husband is the breadwinner unconducive environment, physical, psychological and mental abuse

Eviction due lack of mortgage payments. Some landlords gave three months but couldn’t take it anymore.

No rent payment lead to eviction.

Unintentional Homelessness. It is not your fault. You did everything humanly possible but couldn’t get another job.

Depression due to loss of job.Became unable to function.

Illnesses from COVID19. Have recovered from COVID19 infections but can’t return to work due to lung disease or difficulty with ambulation.

Waiting in line for food:This is shocking to so many people who never believe that it can happen to them.Did COVID19 PANDEMIC came to teach us a lesson?.These people got lots of sympathy because they were laid off due to virus that destroyed so many lives.

So if you are sleeping at the corner of the street you are homeless. If your are an adult and do not have a place of your own you are homeless.Your place of residence is not comfortable you are homeless.

The Big Difference between the current situation is that it is seen as temporary because people will soon get back on their feet.

So the new homeless group are not stigmatized like the homeless people before COVID19 as clueless, senseless,headless,reckless.
