The pandemic of COVID19 laid various adverse effects and made a mark on domestic workers' lives. The ground report shows evidence of a drastic downfall in their income due to raised unemployment, increase in health expenditure, shortage of health care facilities, etc. The second wave of COVID19 has created havoc in their life as their work leaves no savings for them. This article based on a field study argues the health complexities that have arisen in domestic workers' lives during pandemics. It has subjected struggles of domestic workers for health and medication facilities during and after pandemics. It also suggests the corrective measures that government can take to bring out these workers from these drudgeries and the impact of circular economic concepts to sustain their lives comfortably.
