. Aditi Lakra and Dr. C Selvarani


Occupational health is an area of work in public health to promote and maintain the highest degree of physical, mental and social well-being of workers in all occupations (WHO)." In India, tribals' basic health care facilities are very low. Lack of awareness of information and infrastructure facilities remains the main reason for backwardness. Moreover, due to covid 19, the whole world suffered from unemployment and job uncertainty which caused psychological stress. Moreover, many people got jobless due to the pandemic outbreak. Mental stress directly or indirectly harms overall health situations.

The study mainly focuses on the health status of Nicobarese tribes who work in government jobs and private working employees because of limited vacancies. Many employees work from home and mostly remain unemployed. The study highlights how occupational work affects health-related issues during pandemic days.
