Abstract
Most countries across the world have been affected by COVID-19 (Corona Virus Disease, 2019) since December 2019. It saw its footprints in India around 30th January 2020 but it was only around March 2020 that some cases seem to be seen. This study aims to assess the emotional well being of the people of Gujarat, India during this pandemic. The survey was conducted across the state of Gujarat, India with 480 respondents spread across age, gender, occupation, type of family and place of residence. The questionnaire was formed using qualitative one to one sessions with the consumer base, literature review, Generalized Anxiety Disorder - 7 (GAD-7), Impact of Events Scale - Revised (IES-R), and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) and the survey was conducted during the time frame from 7th April to 10th April 2020 before the announcement of the extension of the Lock down from 15th April to 3rd May 2020. The analysis indicated that the people surveyed had a positive outlook towards the Lock down 1.0. They had understood the seriousness of the pandemic and had accepted the guidelines issued by the Government. They had looked at the benefits of the Lock down 1.0 like spending time with the family, working on new skills or hobbies among others instead of getting into negativity. The study concluded that when the survey ended on 10th April 2020, the people of Gujarat, India had a constructive and confident approach towards the Lock down 1.0 enabling it to emerge successfully from this catastrophe.
