Laitafun Bibi, 47, seems almost oblivious of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Downplaying the fear of being infected with the virus, she says, 'We are not scared of the infection because it has not spread in this part of the country.'

Just a few blocks away from the women's enclosure, Sher Mohammed, who says he is 80, echoes Bibi.
