  Evolution is a continuous process for every living system as it leads to better survival and superiority in biological communities. In microorganisms, genetic drift and genetic shift play an important role in the evolution of novel strains [1].

  Pandemics are rare, but they are there before the recent pandemic world has seen four major influenza viruses like pandemics like Spanish influenza, Asian influenza, Hong Kong flu, and Novel influenza A virus or H1N1 pandemic [2]. In December 2019 a noble virus was reported in Wuhan, Hubei province of China which later was identified as coronavirus and its clinical symptoms all together were named COVID-19. It copied many of the clinical symptoms as reported for other flu-causing viruses like swine flu or serve acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), Middle east respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV), etc., and influenza A viruses [3].
