Abstract

The novel Corona virus (Covid-19) pandemic has frightened an unprecedented challenge to continents. The Covid-19 pandemic is a highly contagious viral disease that has been progressing across the globe. The global thought leaders, doctors, scientists and other intellects have enforced the lockdown to reduce the spread of the pandemic. The objective is to study the impact of lockdown and to compare its effects from an epidemiological standpoint.
