In December 2019, the Wuhan health authorities detected a few cases of an atypical pneumonia of unknown aetiology and having symptoms like pyrexia, myalgia, fatigue, coughs, dyspnea, and pneumonia (Shanker, 2020). By laboratory finding, this illness was later confirmed as a novel coronavirus and initially named as a 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). The disease name, as Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) was recommended subsequently by the World Health Organization (WHO). The name SARS-CoV-2 instead of 2019-nCoV was suggested by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses. WHO declared this recent ongoing viral outbreak as a pandemic on 11th March, 2020 and as an international public health emergency on 30th January, 2020 .
