Coronavirus: The struggle of being a ride-share driver

A stimulus package worth more than $1.8 trillion (拢1.5tn) has been agreed by US Senate leaders and the White House to ease the impact of coronavirus.

The pandemic has destabilised the gig economy, leaving tens of thousands of ride-share drivers in the United States in economic limbo.

Julie Davis is a full-time ride-share driver in Seattle, where the first cases of Covid-19 in the US were registered.

In a first-person take, she chronicles the struggles faced by drivers.
