  • India as a country.
  • Corona and its protective measures in India.
  • Effect of COVID-19 on Indian economy.

India is a vast country. It is the second-most populous country after China. It is a county with people of different castes and religions. India occupies the greater part of South Asia. Its capital is New Delhi, built in the 20th century just south of the historic hub of Old Delhi to serve as India's administrative center. In the present scenario, where India along with most of the countries in the world is fighting against a pandemic known as Corona Virus or COVID-19. The best way to prevent COVID-19 is by practicing social distancing. Being a country with such a huge population, it is quite difficult to follow the concept of social distancing. Though India stands first among all the sufferer countries in fighting against coronavirus, even, then, the number of cases of corona in India is increasing very much frequently. WHO(World Health Organization) praised India for its way and system of fighting against this pandemic. To fight against COVID-19, Mr. Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India announced lockdown all over the country so that people could not roam here and there and social distance can be maintained. The lockdown was announced with few exceptions in which emergencies like medical shops and banks were allowed to run on the only condition that social distancing needs to be maintained. Before the lockdown of 21 days got over next lockdown, lockdown 2.O was announced followed by lockdown 3.O which was again followed by lockdown4.0. In the beginning days of lockdown, India was doing good with very few numbers of cases of corona in one day, But as the days passed, the frequency of increase in the case of corona took a high jump which resulted in crossing over 100,000 COVID-19 cases in India.
It is the economy of India which got most affected by COVID-19 and this effect is quite adverse. The economic impact of the 2020 coronavirus pandemic in India is largely disruptive. The World Bank and rating agencies had initially downgraded India's growth for the fiscal year 2021. Although the government has eased restrictions and allowed the business to restart operations, India's more than two-month-long lockdown and flight of migrant workers from urban and industrial centers have crippled economic activity. However, after the announcement of the economic package in mid of May, India's GDP estimates were downgraded even more to negative figures.
