Since December 2019, COVID-19 has created a havoc on Earth. Spreading throughout the world, COVID-19, also known as the novel Coronavirus, has affected millions of people and claimed thousands of lives. In the US only, there are more than 890,000 confirmed cases with more than 50,000 deaths, and the numbers are just increasing.
