Heath communication during COVID-19 in India

Author(s)
Dr. Mohammad Shameer
Abstract
The outbreak of pandemic created panic among public. No one knows how to tackle the pandemic. Government used popular words like Mahammar (Pandemic), folded hands, Laxmanrekha, Social distance, pandemic warrior, Lockdown 1.0 and unlock down 1.0 while dealing with the crisis. Intitially, Government of India imposed lockdown for 21 days and later extended. Red zone, orange and green zone words coined to curb pandemic. The term infodemic has been coined to outline the perils of misinformation phenomena during the management of virus outbreaks, since it could even speed up the epidemic process by influencing and fragmenting social response.
