The covid 19 virus outbreak was an unprecedented crisis before the society. Though globally covid 19 cases had already been started reported from the month of Dec. 2019 onwards, but untill March 13 the Indian Govt. official line was that covid 10 outbreak is not a national health emergency whereas the WHO in the month of January itself declared covid 19 outbreak a public health emergency. The first step of Social distancing as a method of keeping the virus away was first officially flagged by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on March 19 to call for a one day ‘Janata Curfew’ for March 22.
This no doubt was an unprecedented situation, but CSS could visualize and sense the impact that the situation would have in the near future on the people.
