The world is fighting against the most contiguous and infectious diseases Covid-19. The Coronavirus grabs the headlines; it is just one of the major development challenges to the world.
History is full of such kinds of diseases, but the scientist found the way. The naval Coronavirus comes from the Wuhan city of China. This virus brings a major political shift in the new world order. China smartly deals with the virus. While America claims that the “Chines virus” is used as biological warfare. The same America used the “Orange gas” as a biological weapon against Vietnam during 1963.
Doctors and scientists are the front line warrior against the coronavirus; many American Doctors and nurses left the hectic job during the fight. A CNN journalist Fareed Zakaria publish a new book “Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World”, “that 50% American people at the start of pandemic died in a hospital which later diagnose that they are heart patient”.
Crisis always brings leadership to the region. The cities, shopping malls, tourism, international flights, are locked up. Isolation, contact restrictions, and economic shutdown impose a complete change to the psychosocial environment in affected countries. These measures have the potential to threaten the mental health of children and adolescents significantly. Anxiety, lack of peer contact and reduced opportunities for stress regulation are the main concerns.
Covid-19 leaves some of the world’s most vulnerable communities facing “a crisis within a crisis”. Around the world, the economic downturn and rising unemployment will reduce people’s purchasing power, exacerbating the global hunger problem. The Global Report on Food Crises 2020 that “The number of people batting acute hunger and suffering from malnutrition the rise yet again, and the upheaval that has been set in motion by the COVID-19 a pandemic may push even more families and communities into deeper distress”. The global economy will contract 3%, according to the International Monetary Fund, a deeper downturn than that seen in the 2008-09 financial crises.
That’s likely to push unemployment up across the board, with the Fund predicting the unemployment rate will rise to 10.4% this year, from 3.7% in 2019, and to 9.2% from 6.6% in advanced European countries. According to the Labor organizations that more than 2 billion people worldwide working in the informal economy are among the most vulnerable. Labor work on daily wages is affected more in third world countries.
A ventilator is a weapon against coronavirus. Extreme poverty will rise for the first time in a generation by about 100 million people worldwide.
Multidimensional inequalities define the shape of the challenges faced by the education system in today’s world.
Pakistan is the world’s fifth most-populous country, where only a small fraction has access to the internet; officials are using a fairly rudimentary tool for distance learning the television. Pakistan already struggles to keep millions of children in school, and as the partial shutdown continues; educators warn that enrollments could drop further.
Pakistan has some of the world’s worst education indicators. More than 40% of Pakistan’s school’s age children don’t attend school, the second-highest rate in the world.
International travels are banned due to viruses. Tourism contributes more to global output than automotive manufacturing, and business travel facilitates international trade and investment. As of late April 2020, every country had imposed restrictions on international travel, and 45% of countries had partially or completely closed their borders to foreign visitors. Airlines were flying 90% fewer seats on international flights, as compared to 62% on domestic flights. This unprecedented collapse does, however, follow an international travel boom.
