The COVID 19 is an epidemic, which has caused panic throughout the world and it has brought the marketplace to its knees in a matter of a couple of weeks. According to WHO’s report, the number of confirmed cases tested positive of COVID 19 are 737,577, confirmed number of deaths from this virus are 35,000 and the total countries or territories which have been affected by this pandemic are 169; and increasing.

Before hitting Pakistan, it has brought massacre to developed countries like Italy, China, USA, the UK and many more.
This means that even countries with high-end healthcare protocols and systems could not grasp this virus from the roots and discard it from their daily lives.
