The 2019 Coronavirus Epidemic (COVID-19) sparked a worldwide health crisis, with a profound effect on our environment and daily life. The rate of infection and patterns of transmission not only threaten our sense of agency, but also the security measures implemented to contain the spread of the virus also require social separation by not doing what is inherently human, which is to find consolation in others’ society. What is the role (and can be) of the different mass media networks in our lives on individual, social and social levels in this context of physical, social and physical distances, and public Alarm?
Some points can be made out that:
• Effective health communication to ensure the adoption and the reduction of misinformation through sustainable prevention measures;
• Communication on public health in order to increase psychological resilience and socioeconomic conditions in a varied age groups;
• Effective strategies to help people cope with social and physical distances;
Stigma, damage, inequality and inequalities are being reduced.

As per the eyes of UNDP it says:
Countries strive to slow the spread of the virus through patient testing and treatment, tracing contacts, restricting travel, quarantining citizens and canceling large meetings such as gymnastic events , concerts and schools.
The pandemic moves like a wave — which could still crash with those who are less able to cope.
Yet COVID-19 is far more than a crisis in health. It can generate debilitating social , economic and political crises that leave deep scars by stressing every country in which it affects. As the leading agency of the United Nations on the social and economic impact and recovery.
W.H.O says that:
COVID-19 emphasizes that expenditure in mental health services must rapidly be stepped up or that there is a chance of significant rises in mental health conditions in the coming month.
Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization, said: “The impact of the Pandemic is already extremely alarming for human mental health. “The distress of loss of income and often employment is exacerbated by social isolation, fear of contagion and loss of family members.”
The pandemic takes advantage of lacunae, gaps and the value of investing in health personnel, healthcare services and processes for preventing disease outbreaks, tracking them and responding to them.
The best way of avoiding outbreakings and pandemics, as well as the other health risks people around the globe are to have strong health systems. Solid health services
Yet more than five billion people, under current trends, will have no access to basic health facilities before 2030, including health staff, access to essential drugs, and running water under hospitals.
However, too many countries spend too much on health in hospitals, where the prices are higher and the outcomes are always worse, rather than encouraging health and avoiding disease at primary health level.
Eventual reversal of the COVID-19 pandemic is possible, but business can not return as normal.
We do need to prepare for the next pandemic while we focus on reacting to this. It is now a chance to lay the foundations for robust systems of health worldwide.
The only way to stop potential global health crises like the one that we face is through commitment to improve our public health system and our workforce.
It must be that spending in health now saves lives later if we know something from COVID-19.
History would determine not only how we came across this pandemic, but also what we knew and what we did after it was over. History will judge us.
