Abstract

Economy is not the only parameter that should be used to measure the development of any country rather there several other factors that cannot be denied, human welfare being the most important one. In order to avoid the uncontrolled spread of COVID 19, countries round the world announced lockdowns unanimously some earlier and some later. No doubt the shutdown has slowed the spread of coronavirus, however it has other repercussion, ranging from economic slowdown, diminishing the production to note a few. In this study we will attempt to study the effects of the unprepared lockdowns on the human welfare in the developing countries.

Keywords: Coronavirus; COVID-19; Locked-Down; Human; Welfare; Development
