Author(s): Prithveesh Narang, Komal N Muneshwar* and Ashok Mehendale


India is the second largest populous country suffering from the pandemic due to Corona Virus. Social separation and lockdown rules were implemented, but they had a negative influence on economic situation of our country. While there was a negative toll on the economy and the human interaction of our country, environment was the only sector which was positively impacted. During early December in 2019, the first Corona Virus epidemic was announced in Wuhan, Hubei Province, the WHO (World Health Organisation) declared an outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) on 30th January, 2020, and on 20th February, 2020, WHO formally recognised this epidemic of coronavirus disease as COVID-19, where CO stands for Corona, VI-Virus D-Disease, and 19 for 2019 as that was the year this infection first caused an epidemic. The Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 causes COVID-19 disease (SARS-CoV-2). The Corona Virus Disease outbreak introduced not only illness and death, but also hitherto new difficulties including as public health, food availability, deadly interactions, and the global economy. It paved the way for the entire globe to face new challenges that no one could have predicted.
