Emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) are continuously affecting a large population day by day, which is a serious issue for human health, well-being, economy, and sustainable development goals. In India, cholera, pneumonia, and dengue are the few examples of EIDs that affects every level of human setup. The current study aimed to evaluate current status and hospitalization due to EIDs in a Northern India. All infections showed different trend of occurrence throughout the study period and maximum EIDs were found in summer and rainy season while no Shigella was found in suspected subjects. This study finally concluded that the incidence of some EIDs are shown decreasing trend of occurrence after the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the trend of infection is remains same for most of the EIDs as per previous studies. This study indicates that there might be several loopholes in the sanitization and hygiene related activities in India. Hence, there is an urgent need of awareness and medical camps to eradicate existing EIDs.
