Abstract

 Affecting nearly 300,000 people around the world and claiming greater than 10,000 lives, the novel coronavirus-related respiratory illness has been declared a global pandemic and a public health emergency by the WHO [1]. The roots of this problem can be traced into early December of 2019, when the Index cases of what were investigated as ‘pneumonia of unknown origin’ were reported in Wuhan, the epicenter of the disease in China.
