Your project begins from here.
Introduce your topic like WHAT IS DISASTER MANAGEMENT?
DISASTER MANAGEMENT AND “NEW STRAIN OF CORONAVIRUS”
In this page you need to describe your topic in short. For example
Disaster Management aims to reduce or avoid the potential losses from hazards.
It assure prompt and appropriate assistance to the victims of a Disaster and achieve a rapid and effective recovery.
It is the management of resources and responsibilities to lessen the impact of disasters.
A brief History of COVID 19:
Corona virus actually belong to the Corona viridian family.
They are a large family of viruses that are known to cause illness.
It may range from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).
It represents crown like spikes on the outer surface of the virus, therefore, it was named as corona virus.
In December 2019, a hospital in China reported three cases of pneumonia of unknown causes for the first time.
These viruses were thought to infect only animals until the world witnessed a severe outbreak caused by SARS in China.
Authorities carried out an epidemiological investigation and notified the WHO.
In January, the whole genetic sequence of the novel coronavirus was shared with WHO.
Considering that COVID-19 is a brand-new virus, it will take some time to make a scientific assessment of its character.
“NEW STRAIN OF CORONAVIRUS” (page No. 5-6)
Your actual project begins from Page No. 5.
In the recent past, there has been rise in the corona victims.
It is predicted to be new strain and the second wave of Covid.
Both, State and Central government claims that human behavior is the major factor.
Very few people follow COVID 19 precautions.
Others are not prescriptive in requiring these measures such as physical distancing, proper hand washing and mask wearing.
Central, State, Local government as well as individual people, differ in their response to the pandemic.
In some cities and towns, public places are closed and follow strict precautions, others have started operating normally.
At some places Government and community leaders encourage mask wearing and maintaining social distance, where as others say it is a matter of personal choice.
However, one can easily make out the relationship between those precautions and cases of COVID-19.
Places where people were careful, maintaining physical distance and wearing mask, there the number of cases are low.
But, in areas where fewer people are not taking precautionary measures, gathering at one place for eating, drinking, observe religious practices, cases are on the rise.
Life returning back to normalcy in Maharashtra, Jharkhand and Bihar, Cricket match organized by Chhattisgarh government in Raipur, Mass election rallies in West-Bengal and Kumbh mela in Uttar-Pradesh are also responsible for the outbreak of coronavirus.
Due to these events, every single infected person transmits the virus to many others — continue to occur.
