Coronavirus has been the bane on the World. Since its arrival in the month of December, it has ravaged the entire world. Claiming more than 250000 lives, it is slowly progressing towards the notorious landmark of becoming the most deadly epidemic after Spanish Flu.
In order to restrain the spread of the disease, countries have been in a lockdown situation. All economic activities have been put on hold. Private and Public offices are shut with massive downsizing expected in the following months. And the worst part is that no vaccine is having an efficient impact on the virus. Plasma Therapy, injecting Remdisivir and Hydroxichloroquinine is not having the desired effects.
