Corona Virus Disease-2019 pandemic: Planning and implementing a scientific approach to introduce or revoke public health and social interventions

Saurabh RamBihariLal Shrivastava, Prateek Saurabh Shrivastava.

Abstract
In order to comprehensively prepare and respond to the public health emergency of the Corona Virus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, a number of strategies and actions have been taken by all the nations across the world. It is totally understandable that these measures have been the backbone for reducing the caseload, but we have to assess the impact of lockdown on different domains of life and thus take a well-informed and scientific decision to relax these restrictions, without triggering the resurgence of cases. Even while relaxing the public health and social measures, it is ideal that a specific protocol should be followed and not all the measures are lifted in one go from the entire nation. In conclusion, in the battle against COVID-19 pandemic, different nations are in the different stages of the disease and thus the Government has to take decisions about introducing or revoking various public health and social measures based on the local epidemiological indices using a decentralized approach. However, all such decisions have to be done in a scientific manner and support it with better surveillance and community support.

Key words: COVID-19 pandemic, Public health, World Health Organization
