Taxi drivers are still unaware of the safeguards they should take to avoid the spread of the virus.
Many of them are enforced to work as they don’t have sufficient money to sustain their families.
Those who are not a citizen of the UK can not access state funds or universal credit.
The only way to survive against this deadly coronavirus is to stay home and avoid going for work.
