Right now the international community has been witnessing many coronavirus threats. Almost all countries have been affected by the outbreak. Countries and their people have suffered a lot economically, physically and emotionally so far.

What next? What could be the next course of action against the corona curse? It is time to answer these questions.

First and foremost, the economic growth of countries should be accelerated. Yet again, it is also a matter of improving the infrastructure and upgrading the present education levels in the region.

In fact, all these factors will result in a sudden drop in the migrant influx. This phenomenal happening will stop the people making contact with other countries unnecessarily.

Of course, going abroad for work/education is appreciable. However, unnecessary immigration could be averted to a larger extent.

Local economic boom is yet another good step. Filled with enough water from the River Thamirabarani and fertile soil, my native areas like Korkai, Tiruchendur, Tuticorin, Tirunelveli, Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu have long been under agricultural activities like paddy, banana, betel leaves cultivations. I [too] am confident of starting such activities in my areas after turning 50 or so.

Similarly, such economic activities should be largely encouraged for the people to stay home in their region.
