The COVID-19 pandemic has posed a devastating effect on humankind across the world. Its rapid spread is the result of it being a highly contagious viral pathogen. Its spread in India is universal, and nearly 3 million people have been affected, to date. Fortunately, the reported direct death rates have been around 2%, and recovery rates being >70% are promising indicators.
