COVID-19 has intensified human suffering, undermined the economy, turned the lives of billions of people around the globe upside down, and significantly affected the health, economic, environmental, and social domains. This study aims to provide a comprehensive analysis of the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the ecological environment, the energy sector, society, and the economy and investigate the global preventive measures taken to reduce the transmission of COVID-19. This epidemic has caused severe demographic changes and unemployment, and economic activities have been shut down to save human lives. Transportation industries are most severely hit as global tourism has fallen to almost zero during these months. As a solution, financial institutes have introduced stimulus packages worth more than $6 trillion. However, restricted economic activities have also contributed to a cleaner environment. Here in this report, we have collected the literature based on the impacts of lockdown on (EEE); environment (such as; air pollution, water pollution, marine life, and wildlife, etc.), education (such as; positive drawbacks, and long-term effects) and economy (such as; GDP, street vendors, agriculture and food supply sector, and drug traffickers, etc.). Finally, we concluded our topic with affirmative and negative impacts of COVID-19 during the lockdown. To the best of our knowledge, this is a unique and one-of-its-kind review highlighting the essential impact of COVID-19 on the environment, education, and economy.
