This paper deals with an in‐depth analysis of riskness associated with COVID‐19 infections in Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) at the sub‐city (ward) level. The authors examined the degree of risk associated with COVID‐19 infections in Kolkata Municipal Corporation at the sub‐city (ward) level based on socio‐economic and health indicators. They identified high risk and hard hit areas of COVID‐19 transmission. Their analysis based on four risk criteria and associated methodologies would help policy makers to formulate various prevention and/or intervention strategies preventing COVID‐19 transmissions.
The study deals in details the risk factors that are common to any possible pandemic viral outbreak. Hence, the scientific analysis outlined in this research would provide a global context to fight not only a possible second wave of COVID‐19 infections but also any other viral outbreak.
