In the event of the fortuitous emergence and outbreak of corona virus in 2019 and the great toll of human life in millions by COVID-19 next to Spanish flu syndrome in the world (1918), the probability of cancer incidence and its increase in human population may not be ruled out by the thinking that the corona virus outbreak since 2019 and its phenotype modifications into variants to date will not be a worldwide cancer burden in view of the WHOs (GENEVA) statement that 50 percent of world population are the would be sufferers of cancer disease in the near future due to multifarious factors. The above hypothesis may be considered as conceivable in view of the generalization that viruses are causative agents for malignant cancers. John B Leo., et al. [1].
