Abstract

Amid COVID-19 or Coronavirus outbreak, India has been hit by many major outbreaks since the earliest days, as SARS outbreak, swine flu outbreak, HIV/AIDS, Dengue and Chicken Gunya etc. But none of the outbreak was as widespread and as fatal as COVID-19. In this article, we have to discuss about the major outbreaks in the World in general and in India in particular which have been occurred and caused for the severe death tolls over a period of time. By introducing the history of various epidemic and pandemic diseases, then we have to focus mainly on the impact of COVID-19 on the human life among the selected respondents through a well-designed questionnaire. The data has been collected through online. The online questionnaire has been circulated to around 500 persons of various occupations and received from 287 persons. The data has been tabulated and analysed in the following pages. The main purpose of the study is, how the people responded for Prime Minister of India, Sri Narendra Modi on lock-down as well as maintaining social distance, using Masks along with the socio-economic factors influenced by COVID-19 during the lock-down period. The data has been collected during the third phase lock-down period in India.
