Abstract

 2019 Novel Corona Virus (COVID-19) has terrified the world and a community lockdown was the early measure that can be done to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the countries. We did a nationwide comparison by considering the data from three time intervals of lockdown in the India (March 24th, April 14th and May 3rd of 2020). Kerala’s COVID-19 status has improved in the subsequent phases of lockdown. The state reported only 3.36% and 1.16% to the total cumulative cases of the nation in the subsequent lockdown phases. The decreased Test: Case ratio of Maharashtra in the subsequent phases of lockdown indicates the thread of community spread in the state or inadequate number of test performed. The impact of population density in spread of COVID19 in the Tamil Nadu was assessed and districts with high population density had higher incidence of cases. The number of fresh cases reported in the State from April 1 to April 15, 2020 was studied and about 100%-67% of total new cases reported on these days were associated with the socio-cultural event. The cumulative cases reported in the state had crossed the median forecasted cumulative case by April 20, 2020.The cumulative cases in Tamil Nadu is approaching the upper confidence limit which is a result of a community spread in the state. We conclude that only with the achievement of decreased number and diameter of COVID19 hot spots along with measures to implement social distancing, India would be ready face the “live with virus” phase.
