The News Cover: Lockdown has been imposed in several states to protect the countrymen from the outbreak of corona virus. The horror of the second wave of corona has created a terrible situation across the country. The number of corona patients is increasing by leaps and bounds every day. The number of deaths is also increasing. In such a situation, multiple companies have introduced work-from-home facility for employees. 

Being work from home, a new information has come to the fore. When working in the office, employees have to work up to 6-7 hours a day. But now that most people are working from home, it has been found that they have to work in the home for almost twice as long as in the office. According to the World Health Organization, working for the office for long periods of time is very harmful to the body. Research has shown that millions of people are dying for working so long.

According to a report released by the WHO, more than a thousand people die each year from working overtime. This trend was exacerbated during the Corona epidemic. Work from home has become a big challenge for many due to lockdown. If you have been sitting at home looking at the laptop for a long time, then you are bringing great danger to your body. Research has shown that in 2016, there was an increase in the number of strokes and heart attacks due to long-term work. As a result, 7.45 lakh people have lost their lives all over the world. This number is about 30 percent higher than in 2000.

Maria Nira, director of the World Health Organization's Department of Environment, Climate Change and Health, said working 55 hours a week or more is extremely harmful to health. This information will try to save the lives of those workers who are still working long hours.

Research has shown that among those who work 55 hours or more, 35 percent of people have a stroke and 18 percent are at risk. Long-term working side effects have been more common among workers in China, Japan and Australia.
