COVID-19 has spread like wildfire across the globe since the start of the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak, hampering quality of life at multiple levels and causing many deaths. Many aspects of the human experience have been affected, with a body of research being published on its effects on psychological and physical well being, loss of jobs, pay cuts, education, and unpaid caregiving. New findings on these aspects are still emerging as we learn more about the consequences of the pandemic.

This book is intended as a simple summary of recent findings about COVID-19 for academicians and students from science, humanities and commerce backgrounds to understand the pandemic from a microscopic view and how it has touched our lives at different levels.

A collection of topics is presented and explored through chapters dedicated to niche topics on COVID-19. Each chapter is authored by expert scientists, academicians and scholars from leading institutions in India.

The key features of this book set are:

- Interdisciplinary content, making it useful for readers from different academic streams

- A blend of basic and applied research in biology, medicine and social science

- A focus on findings from India

- Updated References for advanced readers

This collection of topics is invaluable for researchers and working professionals in industry and academia as well as general readers who want a broad, insightful perspective on COVID-19.


Researchers, students, academicians, general readers who want to understand niche topics related to COVID-19


I feel it a pleasure to write forward to the book titled “COVID-19: Origin, Impact and Management” edited by Dr. Alfred Lawrence and Dr. Tahmeena Khan. The SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19 pandemic has jolted the entire world at different levels. It is not only the health sector that has been greatly impacted, but human life has suffered at multi-levels, be it psychological well-being, economic upheaval or discrimination in caregiving at home as faced by women. The education sector also saw reform as online mode took over. The situation is more severe and grim in developing countries and it is very important to find out the vulnerable groups, having access to lesser means of protection and prevention.

This innovative book is an interesting reading material as the assorted chapters cater to different aspects related to the pandemic. Several interesting case studies are conducting an in-depth analysis of the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on different target groups. The management strategies and vaccine development have also been nicely explained. The interdisciplinary nature of the book makes it suitable for academicians and students belonging to science, humanities, and commerce background. The chapters are very well written and presented in an easy-to-understand manner.
