Within months after its emergence in China, it had affected more than seven lakhs lives and caused more than thirty thousand deaths. The general clinical symptoms associated with COVID – 19 patients include fever, dry cough, generalized body pain and shortness of breath. Its high transmission potential highlighted the need for a coordinated global response to contain such disease threats.
