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


The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic was an unprecedented situation that impeded the physical and mental well-being of people globally. The expeditious discovery of vaccines and medication for decelerating the spread of SARS-CoV-2 catered to alleviating mortality rates. A comprehensive discussion on the pandemic and its impact on billions of lives has been done in part one of the two books. This part provides a meticulous overview of the COVID-19 pandemic. This book intends to collaboratively serve students, scientists and academicians from different academic areas such as science, humanities, economics; and even common masses. The collation of various heads in this book is based on contemporary needs and elaborately gives an insight into the pandemic, its impact on people’s lives, especially on women, the variations that it brought in the world, and the role of air quality in exacerbating the disease. Drug discovery and vaccination hesitancy-related challenges are also scrupulously described in this book. Authors from various eminent institutions have contributed to the book which makes it a valuable collection of information. Computational Drug Discovery against the pandemic, DFT studies and molecular docking, and drug repurposing for searching potential drug candidates are the highlights of the book. Special emphasis is laid on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women. The book vouches to provide a deep insight into the outbreak, epidemiology, immunology and management of SARS-CoV-2 and will be valuable for evolutionary biologists, pharmaceutical scientists and doctors. In essence, the book will supply a plethora of relevant information for degree students, research scholars, academicians, scientists and anyone who finds an interest in gathering information about the disease.
