A crisis is defined as a significant threat to operations that can have negative consequences if it's not handled properly. Agha (2020) reported that the primary reason being, that all students are unable to afford online platforms usage and smoothly transition to online learning which can have a huge negative effect on students’ career path. Crisis Management is the process (planning, direction and supervision) by which an organization prevents, avoids and management processes that are critical for survival. Crisis Management involves clear roles, responsibilities, requirements in the following areas: crisis prevention, crisis assessment, crisis handling and crisis termination. In times of an pandemic, people tend to experience fear of getting infected with the virus/disease resulting in anxiety, stress, and depression, etc. (Hall et al. 2008). Stress can be explained as a feeling of emotional and physical tension which arises from any event that threatens our homeostasis (Selye 1956). On the other hand, the fear of the unknown is termed as anxiety, that is the body’s natural response to stress (Holland 2018). Depression is viewed as a state of disinterest in daily activities. It is surmised that people facing a pandemic with no vaccination would result in fear of the unknown (in this case, the corona virus) making them anxious, stressed and depressed.
