Abstract

The Corona Virus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic continues to expand beyond the capacity and capability of the health care delivery system and is a global public health emergency.[1] The upsurge in the number of cases is quite evident with the fact that it took 67 days for the caseload to rise to 100000 cases, but then the subsequent rise in the number of cases has been rapid.[1,2] It is important to note that presently the global caseload stands at 2878196 cases, of which 85530 cases were reported in a single day.[2] Moreover, the death count attributed to the infection has increased to 198668, with the global case fatality rate has increased to 6.9%, which is very much high in comparison to what has been observed in the case of seasonal influenza. [2]
