Keywords:Ayurveda, Cope-up strategies, COVID-19-positive outcomes, Environment, Mental health, Social health, Yoga
The ongoing pandemic COVID-19 had been one of the most gruesome medical disasters the world had experienced in the millennia. The sudden case hikes and death numbers multiplying each day even in the most advanced Western countries, the world was literally brought to a standstill. The health-care system buckled under the burden of increasing cases, global travel, and trade ceased overnight, economies crashed. In the face of such an unprecedented adversity, the negative impacts of the pandemic have been studied widely. This article is an attempt to understand and compile the positive changes as well as cope- up strategies that have been adopted in India and across the world to combat this pandemic. The positive outcomes experienced during the lockdown period have been analyzed, citing evidences from research articles published in peer-reviewed journals in the field of health, education, environment, and psychiatry. The results revealed that there are positive changes too in all of these realms, which are never brought to light. Situations like the present times are inevitable and no way to be glorified, but the analysis of its brighter side is in fact the celebration of our strength on the face of the pandemic. Such analyses are essential as they may prove as references in the future.
