This seems like a war in many world countries against an enemy that is invisible but is such a level stronger that it could spread in seconds from one individual to the other. Therefore to protect oneself from this disease self-protection is the most important phenomenon.

For this purpose, the government starts lockdown in many countries. The main reason behind was to prioritize the isolation between the individuals. At the initial stages government started the quarantine places for people with minute symptoms of the disease but later on the home quarantine was recommended as the cases exceed.


With the other affects the coronavirus is making on human life one of the largest is

  • Due to lockdown and various other effects the vulnerability of employment decrease and it will result in the increase of poverty and unemployment rate in the country.
  • As a result of unemployment, many people will meet the poverty line and in this situation, the economy will badly be affected.

In order to rise up the economic level, many countries decided to open the lockdown.

The condition of lockdown has closed all the inputs of income like

  • aviation,
  • international transports,
  • tourism,
  • trades,
  • agricultural stock markets,

  • other related institutes.

The developing world with all these activities in reduction, the remittances of oil trades also takes place as with the reduction in transportation the usage of oil decreases in all nation of the world.

Due to this remittances, many workers abroad become jobless. Hence many countries around the world start to experience the economic impacts of COVID-19. On the front level, the social distancing and isolations result in the restriction of the people gatherings lead to a shortage of supplies.
