Since the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak from Wuhan, in December 2019, we have witnessed constant peaks and troughs in case numbers and mortality rates. The dreaded virus, bearing its exponential contagious properties, has taken over 38,00,000 lives to date and has proven to be the most catastrophic outbreak of the millennium, leaving us helpless. Vaccination might perhaps be the answer, but despite vaccination drives, the World Health Organization recommends taking precautionary measures. After all, prevention is better than cure! This report aims to summarize the general consensus about taking precautionary measures needed to prevent the spread of the virus. It is crucial to develop these suggested habits in order to bring an end to the virus. Through this report, we will learn whether the crowd follows protocols and takes preventive measures, and to what extent. As a community connect project, our aim was to reach out to people and understand their grievances, challenges and what are their biggest fears in this Covid -19 era.
