Jayesh Raj

Abstract: COVID-19 pandemic is imposing a threat on the health and well-being of the individuals and has affected the life and livelihood of people unexpectedly. Since its outbreak medical and public health experts have offered different guidelines to slow down the virus?s transmission. Government of India has been active since the beginning by various measures from following social distance, compulsory wear of masks to closure of educational institutions or nationwide lockdown to combat COVID 19. Despite various safety measures taken by the Indian Government from time to time to limit the spread of COVID-19, the second wave of COVID is here with more drastic impact. To combat this health emergency, the Government has to continue its interventions but efficacy of such interventions depend on peoples? acceptance. The present study analysed people?s perception towards the government intervention during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic for its effective implementation. A total of 216 participants from India, randomly volunteered to participate in this research. The questionnaire consisted of items related to government measures during the pandemic and demographic details. The results of an online survey (N=216) highlighted lack of adequate medical facilities, equipment as the major cause of worry among respondents. The study also establishes that the Coronavirus pandemic has made the individuals worried in terms of cure, medical facilities, death and quarantine which had adverse effects on respondents. Majority of respondents supported all the government interventions but only half of the respondents agreed for the statement that the central government is doing enough in managing the outbreak or in providing financial/material support to citizens during this epidemic period for their livelihood.
