This volume presents a comprehensive account of the COVID-19 pandemic, also known as the novel coronavirus pandemic, as it happened.

Originating in China in late 2019, the COVID-19 outbreak spread across the entire world in a matter of 3–4 months. This volume examines the first responses to the pandemic, the contexts of earlier epidemics and the epidemiological basics of infectious diseases. Further, it also discusses patterns in the spread of the disease; the management and containment of infections at the personal, national and global level; effects on trade and commerce; the social and psychological impact on people; disruption and postponement of international events; the role of various international organizations like WHO in the search for solutions; and, the race for a vaccine or the cure.

Authored by a medical professional and an economist working on the frontlines, this book gives a nuanced, verified, and fact-checked analysis of the COVID-19 pandemic and its global response. A one-stop resource on the COVID-19 outbreak, it is an indispensable read for every reader, as well as a holistic work for scholars and researchers of medical sociology, public health, political economy, public policy and governance, sociology of health and medicine, para-medical and medical practitioners. It will also be a great resource for policy makers, government departments, and civil society organizations working in the area.
