Today, the entire world is shivering in the name of COVID-19 or popularly known as CORONAVIRUS. The epic centre for this deadly disease started in China’s Wuhan Province.
Initially, the virus was more threatening in China. But slowly the virus has spread to the many countries and the deaths have been uncontrollable.
Today almost all the major countries are facing the threat of Coronavirus. Though the travelling ban was imposed, it is not a sufficient measure to curb the spread of this disease.
Though some of the reports suggest that 70% of the Coronavirus affected patients got recovered, the other parts of the world are suffering to tackle the deadly virus.
India, a country of masses also got affected and the infected number raise to 61. Iran. Italy and South Korea are in the news for the most and fast affected nations.
Iran has posted 54 deaths in a single day due to COVID-19. South Korea has the biggest toll of 7513 outside China. Even UK’s Health Minister, Nadine Dorris was tested Positive for COVID-19.
Though there are just measures to prevent the virus from spreading, none has succeeded in containing the Coronovirus on a satisfactory scale.
On one side, the World Health Organization is issuing warnings to global countries. But no country seems to be serious in containing the virus at a high priority.
In an estimate, $2 Trillion (in USD) may be the loss that may arise globally which is a clear indication of recession and downfall of many economies.
