The novel Corona virus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a member of the corona virus family (SARS-CoV-2 virus) that probably originated in Wuhan, Hubei, China in December 2020. The disease has spread to almost every country in the world with a sharp increase in the number of cases ever since its origin [1]. The epicentre of the outbreak has been continuously changing and currently the number of cases is showing an exponential growth in India with almost every sector badly affected by the disease [1].
