 The Brief of Pandemic Covid 19

Based on The COVID-19 pandemic is the most significant health crisis that the world has faced in the past 100 years. It has disrupted our way of living with unprecedented consequences for our daily lives, including how we work and learn. According to estimates from the International Labour Organization (ILO) (2020: 1), 14 per cent of working hours were lost globally in the second quarter of 2020 when compared to the last quarter of 2019.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created the largest disruption of education systems in history, affecting nearly 1.6 billion learners in more than 190 countries and all conti-nents. Closures of schools and other learn-ing spaces have impacted 94 per cent of the world’s student population, up to 99 per cent in low and lower-middle income countries. The crisis is exacerbating preexisting education disparities by reducing the opportunities for many of the most vulnerable children, youth, and adults those living in poor or rural areas, girls, refugees, persons with disabilities and forcibly displaced persons to continue their learning (Policy Brief 2020: 2).

Based on Kundu and Bej (2020: 1) Corona Virus Starting from China, the deadly COVID-19 pandemic, caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, has already taken up the whole world into its capture compelling the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare it as a pandemic disaster on March 11 2020 (WHO, 2020) and almost the whole world has put under the house arrest.
