A number of studies are being undertaken to study the possible role and nature of the virus and its impact on human life as a whole. The changing pattern in epidemiology, symptoms and spread or transmission of this virus has made it necessary to carry out further research. Records are suggestive that the viral outbreak has affected more than 200countries/regions globally.
