The money will specifically be used first -
For masks and for sanitizers - this is because in the slum areas, there's no direct water supply to each house. At the time of self quarantine, it's essential that people don't gather at the local tap or tanki and that they continue to wash their hands. Sanitizers have come out at the top, of things required urgently. Hand washing liquid and soaps will also be provided, along with repeated instructions on how to wash hands and avoid contact with too many surfaces.
