Abstract

The pandemic of COVID 19 having spread to more than 200 countries across the globe it is time to rethink strategies to contain the spread of the disease. The virus being novel and the natural history still incompletely understood the world seems to be in hit with the panic button. Seeing no race, gender, social class the virus has affected both developed and developing countries alike. However, to understand if existing measures followed are going in the right direction, we need an understanding of the existing situation in countries across as well as our own. The study attempts to analyse the trend patterns around the world especially focusing on China, US, the neighbouring countries of India and then looks into the patterns of COVID 19 in India.
