Every news and media outlet seems to be discussing this ever-changing topic sparking numerous debates, anxiety, and even fear across the globe. As the world scientists intensely search for a solution to this increasing pandemic, many governments are taking protective measures by shutting down schools, social gatherings, restricting travel and placing their communities on hold.
