The Coronavirus pandemic is getting serious with the passage of time. The virus which originated from Wuhan province in China, spread worldwide thanks to the human-to-human transmission and has now affected more than 340,000 people. It has claimed more than 14,500 lives everywhere in the world, while over 99,040 people have recovered from the virus as well.

The worst-hit places in the world are in Europe apart from China. China experienced more than 80,000 cases with 3,200 people losing their lives, while Italy was worst hit with 5,470 plus people dying in over 59,000 cases of positive Coronavirus cases. Spain has 1,140 deaths, which is the third-most in the world. The WHO has called for a complete lockdown of places with severe cases of the disease.

India has put more than 75 districts in the country under complete or partial lockdown due to the spread of COVID-19. The Asian giant has experienced more than 400 cases so far and 8 people have died while only 24 people have recovered so far from the deadly virus. The Narendra Modi-led government had put the entire country under lockdown on March 22, Sunday, calling it ‘Janta Curfew’, to avoid community transmission of the virus.

The success of it has led to other states closing their borders and putting section 144 (curfew) in big cities and urban areas. Kerala also took many steps to ensure the virus didn’t spread to uncontrollable levels after the tally of positive cases went to 67 with 15 new cases recorded on Sunday. The CM Pinarayi Vijayan out Kasaragod in complete lockdown, with it being the ground zero in the state with 11 cases in total of the virus.

The world has come to a halt due to outbreak of the pandemic
