Homeless Californians take over vacant houses

This 13 April 2020 video from the USA says about itself:

Homeless Families Are Taking Over Vacant Homes to Protect Themselves From Coronavirus

In most major American cities, residents have been told to stay home and avoid unnecessary contact with others to slow the spread of coronavirus.

But California has by far the largest homeless population in the United States, and while state and local jurisdictions have taken certain measures to protect the unhoused from COVID-19, the vast majority are being left in the lurch.

That’s why a group of families in Los Angeles decided to take matters into their own hands, forcing their way into a number of vacant homes owned by Caltrans, the state transit authority, in the East LA neighborhood of El Sereno.
