The mass media has a significant influence in shaping public opinion. The media distribute information to the public, which subsequently disseminates the information to make people more aware of or modify their views or values. The dispersion of news and information influencing societal structure is referred to as the media effect. The purpose of this study is to compare the coverage of COVID-19 awareness in Rajasthan's major four newspapers, namely Rajasthan Patrika, Dainik Bhaskar, Times of India, and Hindustan Times. The study will be done for the months of June, July, and August 2021. The study takes a step forward by measuring the COVID-19 awareness news coverage area with qualitative and quantitative data. This research offers the researcher a method for involving the media in promoting COVID-19 awareness in Rajasthan. The analysis of these four newspapers revealed that the English-language newspapers published more information-based pieces and spread awareness among the general public, but the Hindi-language newspapers published very little or no material about COVID-19 awareness.
