The coronavirus which the World Health Organization declared as pandemic in March, 2020 has killed over 3,5 millions people world wide. It began in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and since then became threat to the entire world economy and lifestyles. No treatment not any vaccine has been found to cure the disease. However, differences in testing mean that the number of cases may be understated for some countries.
The solution for the virus has raised series of conflict across the world including series of allegations from United States and Australia against China who they accused of not coming out straight with the pandemic. The virus has no doubt shot the entire world into series of constraint into house arrest and several preventative measures across the globe including the introdyof social distances.
We will recalled that United States had been the most suffered nation with almost 1 million confirmed cases and over 85, 000 death of it's citizen death. Other's nations that suffers mostly are Italy. Spain, France, Germany and United Kingdom. The virus has killed over 250,000 across the world and yet no approved drugs has been recommended.
