Author(s):

Abstract:
As the ripple of COVID-19 seen around the globe, it’s forcing humankind to innovate and change the way we work and live. The upside of where we find ourselves right now is that individuals and corporations will be more resilient in a post-COVID-19 world. It can act as a ‘’WAKE-UP CALL FOR ALL OF US, AS A INDIVIDUAL, AS A SOCIETY AND AS A COUNTRY. ‘’life after Covid-19 should not be the same. It will call for a change in priorities, in focus and in the way we do things.SARS-COV-2 (Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus -2), The virus that causes Covid-19,first emerged in Wuhan china, in December 2019.The virus caught the global community off guard, and it’s future course is still unpredictable, it was on March 11, 2020,that the world health organization (WHO.,) [5] declared a global pandemic. There is no crystal ball to tell us what the future holds and what the ‘’end game’’ for controlling this pandemic will be. Billions of people are in lockdown, unable to visit one another, unable to go work, unable to attend school, unable to meet one another in public places. People around the world are in desperate straights, struggling at home, in care homes and intensive care units, dying of the same cause, separated from their loved ones in their hours of need. At times of existential danger, we instinctively desire to be close to our family and friends, hold their hands and embrace them but now we are forbidden to do so, for every act of physical contact, every expression of physical loving-kindness and compassion could bring illness and death.
