A large number of city dwellers have been leaving the capital or changing houses as their income took a hit an many of them lost their capacity to pay house rent.

Many lower middle class and middle class people who lost their jobs or experienced severe reduction of earning sources were forced to leave the city due to high house rent and other expenses.   

Besides, changing accommodation became more frequent as many were seeking to move into small houses with low rent.

The exodus started after Covid-19 hit the country in early March, prompting the government to announce a general holiday.
