The virus has quickly become a pandemic disease that is keeping even the World Health Organization on its toes. Every health organization is working tirelessly for a cure. Coronavirus which originated from China has brought all sectors of the globe down from running smoothly. Almost all nations of the world got locked down and restricted movement of people by all means.
