The corona virus has affected world-wide, to contain the spread of Covid -19 most government temporarily closed schools, colleges & Universities. The outburst of covid-19 was first identified in Wuhan city of China during December 2019. UNESCO releases globally 290 million school students affected due to stay away from school. It is evident that pandemic has replaced the century old chalk and talk method of teaching to online teaching. There are many educational platform available today to reach the students through online but in order to use those platform both teachers and students hardly need certain things such as computer/mobile with internet access, comfortable chair, separate workspace, necessary software, earphones etc., Even though there are various techno driven products available to teachers and students to teach and study online but the basic things which are hardly needed

to access those platforms are not distributed equally to all. Drop-out rates across the globe  are likely to rise as a result of this massive disruption to education access.

The recent outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic increased the gaps in the education sector globally. Though, the Coronavirus pandemic is novel, but it already has noxious effects on humanity. COVID-19 outbreak has created educational disruptions, and global health concerns that proved very difficult to manage by global health systems. As at now, no nation or race across the world is immune from the coronavirus pandemic, and the entire world seems overwhelmed by the speed of the spread and the devastating effects of COVID-19. The coronavirus pandemic has no boundaries, and the effect is large and fast. Just within few months of the outbreak of the disease, it has drastically changed the lifestyles of the entire world with billions of people being forced to ‘stay at home’, ‘observe self isolations’, and work and learn from home. It has limited the freedom of people to move, trade or associate. Not only has COVID-19 caused a total lockdowns in many countries across the world, but it also caused the death of thousands of people including, women, and the elderly. It was more worrisome to know that reports from various continents, including, America, Africa, Asia, and Europe indicated a daily increase in the number of new cases, and mortality due to COVID-19.
