Ramesh Chaurasia-Negative and positive Impact of Covid-19

The Covid-19 pandemic hit the world in an absolutely unexpected manner. Due to no immediate backup plans being ready for us to overcome the multifold impacts of such a hideous pandemic we had to pay a heavy price in the form of financial, environmental as well as societal challenges and losses.

The dark side

The pandemic was certainly not a good time for anyone to witness all around the world.

The first few months of the pandemic when everything hit a complete pause in almost every aspect started to feel like everyone's’ worst nightmare. Transportation stopped, passenger travels got hindered and goods’ supply were severely interrupted. Casualties increased and the number of people who got infected were rising heavily. A dark cloud of worry, sorrow and uncertainty covered the world. Businesses crashed badly as the consumers were not in a state to purchase and invest their money in anything except for just the material pertaining to the basic needs.

People lost their jobs in huge numbers and barely managed to keep up with the basic needs of food, shelter and clothing. Some of them even found it hard to tackle the matter of basic subsistence for that particular span of a few months.

Rising medical uncertainties.

The virus spread at such an immense pace that the situation became unmanageable to a great extent. Even the countries offering the best medical facilities failed at presenting practically helpful solutions to handle the situation. While the regular medical strain, other than the spread of Covid-19 pandemic, was already a lot to handle, the increased strain of the pandemic that came in suddenly added up to the pressure of the medical staff to work towards it accordingly. Not only were the number of people who were getting infected rising but also, the amount of medical waste generated was immense.

Every year the medical industry accounts for hundreds of tons of medical waste getting generated, this amount is ever-increasing. Adding up to this, it can be rightly expected that the outbreak of a sudden pandemic was not even slightly okay to be faced and moved along with. With no efficient and guaranteed solution available to treat people suffering from the attack of the virus, the medical experiments began which certainly cost people even heavier of a price to pay. People began to panic so badly that the level of anxiety, depression and stress started going up considerably. As a result, the number of people suffering from heart strokes, mental imbalances and anxiety related issues started going up.

All things bright and positive

While almost everything was negatively impacted, one sphere that bloomed to some extent was, the natural sphere of our environment. As the world stopped, the regular hustle which marked the functioning of the world hit a pause, the environmental and natural side of the world witnessed a positive change. The transportation got restricted in all aspects and factories were shut for quite a few months initially, leaving behind only a few exceptional cases. Due to this, the pollution levels dropped considerably, furthermore, because of which nature got a chance to breathe clean air and enjoy the atmosphere filled with freshness rather than smog as well as dust.


The impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic are vast and have touched almost every line of work in the world. Starting from the medical sector to the business sector, job sector and the environmental sector, everything witnessed suddenly changing ways of life post pandemic. We, as people who have been blessed enough to survive the pandemic are still coping up with the post effects. It’s only together that we can make this journey of recovery manageable to a certain extent.
