AbstractWe see a worrying rise of COVID-19 cases globally, every day. Many countries imposed nationwide lockdown, ordering their people to stay home with nearly all services suspended. On other hand, due to this strict lockdown, COVID-19 poses severe economic challenges in securing the necessities of life, for the majority of the population. Many countries are now facing the threat of high inflation and increasing unemployment. Not only employees are suffering, but it is also very important to note that, more than 150 crore students, globally, are seriously affected by the sudden shutdown of educational institutions, UNESCO said. Undoubtedly Lockdown is one of the best weapons to stand against this pandemic by it costs an economic downturn. Presenting various thought-provoking facts that explain the dire need for human beings to get out of the home for survival, in this work, we proposed a smart wearable jacket (prototype), which is a technological combination of hardware and software that can be used to sense and respond, ensuring a safe physical distancing to restart the normal life, by safely being a part of unavoidable crowded situations like, during the utilization of public transportation facilities while commuting to workplace, educational institutes and various essential needs.
