Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools, colleges, universities, and other educational institutions all over the world transitioned into online classes. The health and safety of everyone is the utmost priority during the pandemic, and online schooling is only the best option during these times.

The online education system or work atmosphere has brought various challenges as well. Schoolchildren, students, teachers, professors, employees, etc who are studying in various schools and universities and people around the world using online platforms, either for educational purposes or for work purposes are experiencing various health issues due to prolonged usage of online platforms during this pandemic situation.

These health issues can be physical and mental, such as eyesight problems, backache, headache, fatigue, insomnia, lack of interaction, social isolation, increased anxiety, stress, bad ergonomics, lack of classroom ethics, and physical activities. Various health surveys and reports are confirming it.

Parents and teachers observed behavioural changes in children, like negative attitudes, bunking online classes, misusing the gadgets meant for educational purposes, and aggression. Students felt a loss of confidence and low motivation which otherwise was possible in regular school days, the survey indicated.
