ABSTRACT

Pandemic of corona virus was started on the 11 March of 2020 year in Wuhan city of Peoples Republic of China by SARSCov 2 novel corona virus. In Covid 19 lockdown situations different types of industries got suffered and including livestock and poultry farming at high range. In the December of 2019, outbreak of corona virus started in China. The most common symptoms of this viral infection was observed and reported by the International Committee on the Taxonomy of Viruses SARS Cov 2. Main signs and symptoms of infections has been observed, tiredness, shortness in respiration, pain in chest area, dry cough, fever with difficulty in breathiness. Its genome sequence homology study also showed that the nucleotide sequence of human corona virus (SARS Cov-2 virus) is 87.5 percent to 96.3 percent identical to bat-borne corona viruses. Factory closures, IT parks, restaurants, shopping centers, and multiplexes are relatively easy to close during lockdowns, but agriculture and animal husbandry are more difficult to close; these industries will continue to produce. In order to manage our agriculture and livestock sectors in the best interests of both producers and consumers, we need an effective and quick action plan. The first step is to ensure that farm produce, livestock feed, and veterinary medication can circulate freely. Many critical services, for example, were not affected by the lockdown. Essential services such as food, feed, and agricultural inputs have been identified.
