Abstract

India, and the world, is going through an unparalleled period of worldwide epidemic, lockdown and struggle against the novel corona virus. This viral outbreak is a new frontier and the ways to tackle it is largely unknown, and unpracticed. India with its gigantic population and operational challenges, is trying to contain the spread of COVID-19 and is largely being successful in this attempt. Also, the nationwide lockdown has been instrumental in restricting the spread of the novel coronavirus.

The aim of this review is to understand the etiology, pathogenesis and presentation of this disease and to learn the risk factor associated with it. Also, to comprehend the proper precautions to be taken by the healthcare providers and public to reduce and curb down the ill effects caused by this virus. I hope this review helps us understand the peril caused by this virus and imply the cautionary routine in our lives.
