This Saturday, May 23, 2020, photo provided by sister Pinky Baby shows Jyoti Kumari 15, with her father at their home in Darbhanga district in Bihar state, India. Kumari rode a bicycle hundreds of miles with her father riding pillion to escape the constraints of a coronavirus lockdown in India that appears to have staved off an unmanageable spike in coronavirus cases but that triggered an exodus of migrant workers and crippled the economy.
