Abstract: For the uninitiated, Coronavirus disease 2019, popularly referred to as Covid-19, is an infectious respiratory disease, primarily transmitted through close contact. In general, the rapid spread of coronavirus disease has significantly altered the daily routines of people all over the world. A large number of changes, many of which have health concerns as causes, are bound to generate anxiety and panic in people. A fear is being experienced by everyone in these trying times, despite the large number of precautions available at one’s disposal. Education in the Covid-Era has turned out to be a tricky business, and expectedly, students feel burdened with keeping up with their studies in the middle of a global pandemic. Teachers aren’t immune to Covid’s psychosocial impacts either. While the ‘online classes’ may have been uncomfortable- and impractical- for some students, they’ve proven to be more stressful for teachers, who aren’t as familiar with technology as the former. Families have especially gone through a myriad of changes in the Covid era. These changes have had both positive and negative psychosocial impacts on the family members.
