  Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) is a fatal pandemic affecting global health within a short interval of time. It has been emerged from the seafood market in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. The origin of virus is still unknown, but mostly from bats or laboratory is a controversy, though many are focusing on wild animal market (especially pangolins, the most trafficked mammal on earth). It causes respiratory and gastrointestinal anomalies. Lymphopenia is a cardinal feature of the disease. Older age group, immunocompromised and humans with multiple ailments are more susceptible to infection. Diagnosis can be done through chest CT scan and RT PCR. Quarantine and isolation of infected along with social distancing can depress the epidemic.
