Year 2020! When the world was looking forward for its arrival, wishing it to be a remarkably terrific year, none would have foreseen how terrifying it was going to be.

COVID-19, the name tells us that it began in 2019, but it gained the status of a pandemic in the beginning of 2020. A deadly virus which originated in the Wuhan province of China, within a few weeks spread like wildfire in the entire world and was soon recognized as a ‘Pandemic’ by WHO.

There is apparently no need to explain the term ‘pandemic’, as the world is now very much aware of what it means. On a lighter note, COVID-19 has seemed to enhance our vocabulary by introducing terms like ‘pandemic’, ‘quarantine’, ‘self-isolation’, ‘lockdown’ etc which probably we had never heard of, on a serious note, it has not just affected the health of the people but has also managed to infect their minds, lifestyles, jobs, food habits – in short, it has taken each and every aspect of human life into it’s vicious circle bringing the entire world to a standstill.

Before we could even understand the magnanimity of the situation, COVID-19 had already become an international crisis – a crisis that an individual, the society, the nation and the world as a whole, as one unit, had to tackle. The phrases like ‘Struggle for existence’, ‘Survival of the fittest’ seemed to make more sense all of a sudden.

The world is struggling to breakout the spread of COVID-19. We must admit that we have been fortunate enough that when India came under the threat of the virus, we were already aware of how intense the situation could get and we could prepare ourselves to curb its spread by following the examples of the measures implemented in the countries affected before us.

Almost all over the world every day thousands of new cases are reported. It highlights that the rate of new cases being infected or the deaths caused by the virus has not decreased although effective measures are implemented. The country leaders have taken the huge responsiblty to bring out effective measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Countries are facing lots of challenges like:
1-Shortage of masks for public
2-Lack of specific Vaccine for the covid-19
3-Shortage of PPEs and hospital beds etc.

If these are the issues beinv faced in the medical field, the major setback due to this issue has been the economic crisis. Business have been effected, Jobs have been lost, Production has decreased – in total economies have been crumbling and are struggling for their existence just like humans have been struggling for their survival.

Communication has been so important in crisis management. The only thing that has kept us connected and sane in this terrifying situation is communication and technology where it’s been necessary for us to maintain social distancing.

We might have been cribbing, ranting or complaining about the lockdown, but we should realise that it would have been totally impossible to control the spread of the virus in this huge country with a population of 130 crores.

While in my opinion the lockdown had been absolutely necessary, I also advocate that it should have been done more effectively. With the borders being sealed and transportation being stalled, thousands of migrant workers were left with no food, no shelter, no job and no clue of how they are going to tackle this issue.

Watching them suffer for a one time meal and listening to their cries of “If not because of the virus, they would die out of hunger” was heartwrenching. That made us wonder, if these poor workers were not being considered as the citizens whose safety too was the responsibility of the government.

India being not so good in medical facilities and other such resources and a country with 130crore of population the overcrowded country it would be dangerous to the countries economy to control COVID-19.

Government has to give much preference not only for the health and security of the people but also to the welfare and wellbeing of the country people. In urban area people work from home and continue to earn income, if there has been deduction in their pay, they still are getting an earning and continue to live there life happily . But the rural people lost their jobs and have lost access to their basic needs.

One things we need to realise is that the Government might be doing or not doing enough to tackle this situation, but we as individuals need to understand our responsibility and extend our helping hand to the people in need.
