The The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the challenges and hindrances in each sector and every aspect of life. The digital connectivity replaced the physical movement and e-currency (use of credit and ATM cards) replaced the physical hard currency. Let us discuss, how Corona has affected the worldwide lifestyle? And how it changed the world’s trends?. In this regard, the entire world is much worried and thinking to save the Global economy, lives of peoples, livelihoods, food and the rest of human belongings.
I had listened to my forefathers about the many disasters. When they faced acute food shortages and water scarcity. In the times of pandemics, they had to eat the leaves and dried covers of trees. We were assuming that, these are no more than fairy tales. As we didn’t witness such type of any disaster which compelled people to eat tree-leaves.
Today, I am recalling those stories and feeling much upset. If the world is not l getting successes over this pandemic of coronavirus then around 7.8 billion peoples will face acute food security in the coming months. The corona virus is spreading rapidly in every country which will leave the worst impacts on all aspects of life.
Impacts of Corona-virus (COVID-19):
The COVID-19 very badly affects almost all aspects of life including lifestyle, economy, environment and production. Due to COVID-19 whole world has been locked down and the people have been stucked and limited to their homes.
Technology played a vital role and enabled things to happen, like video conferences, work from home, online purchasing, home delivery, etc.
COVID-19 has almost 100% affected the nightlife of tourism places and livelihood sources. Atomic power countries have started thinking about investing in biological and chemical safety measures. Peoples are spending more time with families. Just before one-two months before the same populous was so busy in their business, specific lifestyles, and many other irregular tasks.
Million of rupees have been invested in personal hygiene but the behavior change has remained a big question. Just after the outbreak of coronavirus peoples have started hand-washing practice, but this would be more important to do it properly and continuously. It also reduced air pollution, noise pollution, and water pollution.
Corona has affected even almost collapsed the financial systems of the world with the less operation of manufacturing units, export, import, air travel, agriculture production, skilled and unskilled labor, etc.
It will affect the economy of every person and country of the world. World largest economies such as China, Italy, Spain, Indis, USA, UAE has imposed lockdown and are following the quarantine policies, which is also reducing the manufacturing of food, non-food and pharmaceutical items in international markets. This unbalanced manufacturing will reduce the supply side and many economic sectors will face big losses. This outbreak increased the huge number of urban unemployment around the world which will definitely lead to an increase in the poverty rate. The millions of rural and urban unemployed peoples will be a burden on the world economy. Long term economical impacts are expected shortly (near future).
The overall decline of China
Nowadays, China was the world-leading and dominant supplier of almost all the things we use in life, from the toothbrush to footwear. By this dominancy china changed the behavior of consumers, the poor of the poorest person of the world can watch colored TV, Smart Phone and other things, which were only dreams of those peoples. Because china started things according to the purchasing power of the consumer.

Impacts on Worldwide tourism
Tourism is one of the most affected aspects worldwide. Almost all countries closed the tourist points because of the panic of COVID-19. Due to worldwide borders closed and the panic of coronavirus made prohibited travel on public places and tourist places.

The lock-down in all over the tourism points, countries and closed hotels, airlines affected this industry very badly, this was the busiest season in Asian countries but all of those are closed and fighting against coronavirus.
According to IATA (International Air Transport Association), about 29 billion dollars (5%) of revenues will be reduced this year due to the corona outbreak worldwide, which shaken the tourism industries. This sudden economic lockdown in worldwide markets affected the tourism revenue of tourism countries.
Gender perspective (impacts on women)
Women are about 49.6% population of the world, it means half of the population of the world is financially weak, no matter women are playing their role in each sector but the ratio of working women is very low and in which working women very few are self-reliant and empowered women. Therefore, women are more vulnerable in this situation, because they have more responsibilities than men.
