A Study on the Socio-Economic Status of Covid 19 Patients in Coimbatore
This paper investigates the economic impacts of COVID-19 on households based on differences in the Socio-Economic Status (SES). We determine the household-level effects of the COVID-19 by using Religion, Mother tongue, Social background, Age, Education Qualification, Type of family, Marital status and Household Income. Poor households and households with low Socio-Economic prerequisites are struggling the most due to the pandemic. We used primary data of 50 sample respondents collected through snowball sampling technique using an Interview Schedule from Coimbatore. Poor households were less resilient and more likely to fall back into poverty due to COVID-19, while the opposite stands true for non-poor households with high SES. There are nonetheless very few literature articles associated with the influences of shocks on the Socio-Economic Status of specific households and communities in the developing world like India.
