Current boom of rapidly spreading Coronavirus worldwide is causing havoc among the masses globally. The World Health Organization has declared Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak pandemic on 11th March 2020. So, the internet is flooded with awareness articles about its symptoms, prevention, treatment and precautions. Fever, sore throat, dry cough and difficulty in breathing are common symptoms of the ailment. Coronavirus can spread from an infected individual, through sneeze, cough and spewing throat and nasal secretions into the air.
