This study conducted in Dakshinpuri, an urban neighborhood in Delhi, reports data over a 13-month period which includes the period “before lockdown” i.e., October 1, 2019 to March 21, 2020 and “after lockdown” i.e., March 22 to November 5, 2020. The period “after lockdown” included the lockdown phase (March 22 to May 31, 2020) and unlock phase (June 1 to November 5, 2020).
