Outlines: Severe acute respiratory syndrome; coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is an emerging virus from 16th Dec 2019, has created virulent pandemic situation over 217 major countries and territories including USA, India, and Brazil etc. There are multiple pharmaceuticals available for treatment. Although no vaccine yet available in the world but few Indian and Russian vaccine results are promising. The treatment procedure is compelling for lock downs and confinements. The COVID-19 is still on the trot from March 24th, 2020 in India so also Odisha and its capital Bhubaneswar killing 87 people and suffering 33454 people and accompanied by ill health, job losses, domestic violence, poverty, food scarcity and loss of mobility.

Scope: To manage the pandemic need good governance, leadership and health-care upgrading, public private partnership, public awareness, risk communication with improvising continuous supply of foods, goods, service systems. Many dynamic epidemic models i.e. SIR and SIS and SEIR and SEIRS are suggested, but the Ganjam practical field model has been observed successful in Odisha like Kerala, Bhilwara (Rajasthan) and Dharabi (Mumbai) models are popular in India. However the present focused areas is Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation which is worst affected hotspot areas for COVID19 in Odisha.

Methodology: The search envisages collection of data of Ganjam, Bhubaneswar, Odisha and India day wise and analyzing the data statistically. The work includes preparing the adoptive model for Ganjam district and age wise. The age group and gender wise analysis of the COVID19 data of Bhubaneswar has been done along with finding the peaks of the outbreak curve in Odisha and the districts.

Results: The micro level investigation revealed that male female confirmed case has a ratio of 67%:33%. The number cases is observed higher from age group is 15 to 41 years. Still the virus has proved causing more mortality to age group >60 in Odisha including Bhubaneswar. The children and women are the least prey to COVID19. The ACE 2 receptors are responsible for infection from SARSCoV2 virus. Ganjam model is one among the successful model to combat against COVID19 for the people of Odisha.
