The COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing lockdown has uncovered glaring vulnerabilities in the urban design frameworks and law enforcement mechanisms of cities and other townships in India. The Epidemic Diseases Act has enabled a brutal lockdown by law enforcement authorities across states even as social distancing has remained elusive in urban townships due to the inherent design flaws and population density.
