Challenges and Strategies during Pandemic : An Indian Perspective




The world history has been witnessed of number of pandemics including Russian flu in 1889, Spanish flu in 1918, Asian flu in 1957, HIV/AIDS (human immunodeficiency virus, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) in 1981, and SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) in 2003. Now, the human community is struggling against transmitting disease called COVID-19 (coronavirus disease). Many countries, including China, Italy, the United States of America, Spain, France and Iran, etc. experienced catastrophic COVID-19 attack and lost the lives of their many citizens. India, the world's second-largest population, has not yet experienced the outbreak of corona disease on a community level, but India is most likely to be affected. This paper presents a countryside discussion on the process and importance of a quick response of India as a remedy against COVID-19. This paper is based on secondary data from various resources of world health organization (WHO), the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India and other research documents. The analysis demonstrates the decline in the percent of COVID-19 infected people after proper social distancing implementation among the human community.
