The plight of Covid 19 has become more and more threatening to the world with the number of people infected with the virus soaring every day with no sign of any potential slowing down or vaccination in sight. Countries and their Governments are trying to fight the pandemic in one or the other ways as and well suited for their citizenry. Many countries have imposed lockdown and have mandatorily blanketed the isolation, like India, Italy and other European Countries, whereas, others are trying to save their faces in denial like Brazil. The most effective method of prevention at present available for the Government’s disposal is lockdown and forced isolation. It is hence understandable why the Government of India imposed a 21-day lockdown and further extended, to prevent the virus from further spreading faster.
