Yes my post is regarding latent function of social distancing and lockdown.

Where the manifest function of lockdown is to stop the spreading of covid but its latent function which is unintended consequences of above lockdown action is decreasing crime against women in society i.e outside home.

But we know that there exists dysfunctions for every social action.your post covers the latent dysfunction of lockdown.

Here the latent dysfunction for the lockdown is increasing domestic violence against women.

So our both articles cover rk merton as latent aspect of violence against women due to lockdown.🙂

Negative Impact of Lockdown

  1. Domestic Violence
  2. Mental Health Issue
  3. Economic Impact - Informal sector are in distress; Job Loss
  4. Displacement of Migrant Labour
  5. Vulnerable Section - Issue of Exclusion, Entitlement, left on whims and donation of Upper class
  6. Impact on education
  7. De globalisation
  8. Impact on Global Supply chain

I think these are few negative impact of Lockdown more can be added.

The Hindu: India’s disease surveillance needs a reboot by Maya John


“According to public health experts, one person in every 10 seconds contracts TB, and up to 1,400 people in India die every day of the disease. This indicates that TB has a R0 value (basic reproduction number) and fatality rate that is way higher than those attributed to COVID-19 so far. However, it is important to note that TB and many other contagious diseases are ignored as “ordinary”, and elicit very low attention. In contrast, some diseases are quickly identified as epidemics of greater public concern.


Diseases are being selectively discovered and have the propensity to be identified as an epidemic when they have a signalling effect for the scientific community. In a majority of instances, it is only when there is a threat of transmission to the well-to-do sections of society or wealthier regions that the disease actually has such a signalling effect. It is not a coincidence that a relatively downplayed disease such as TB is largely a poor man’s disease.”

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for a serious aspirant to discuss Sociology Paper-2. I want to discuss each topic in syllabus over video conference so that notes can be enriched (in terms of quoting thinkers, adding additional dimensions, examples etc). If any serious aspirant who has already finished reading for the paper (preferably someone who has given Mains multiple times, as this would benefit such people more) is interested pleas DM me. We can workout a plan. I have given Mains with Sociology 3 times - and willing to share notes etc.
