Abstract: The new Coronavirus, commonly known as Covid-19 or SARS-CoV-2, was identified first in Wuhan, China, in 2019. However, it became a global pandemic within the first few months of 2020. Covid-19 has undergone numerous mutations between then and now, resulting in millions of infections and deaths worldwide. At the same time, the pandemic has created unprecedented global upheavals in every sphere of life. Sadly, any hopes of fully containing Covid-19 have remained uncertain since the pandemic has resurfaced in waves in most countries, demonstrating extreme resilience. As a result, Covid-19s economic burden has grown with each passing day.

Keywords: Covid-19; SARS-CoV-2; pandemic.
