The 2019 new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic is a serious global public health issue. Nearly all nations have seen the virus spread since it was initially identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. Over 144 million cases had been documented globally as of March 3, 2021, with 3.07 million fatalities, or a case-fatality rate of 2.12% (WHO, 2021). The novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) that causes COVID-19 is much more widespread than previous outbreaks of coronaviruses like the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in 2012 and the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) in 2003. The World Health Organization (WHO) has suggested a number of control measures based on the COVID-19 virus's known mechanism of transmission, including the use of masks, regular handwashing, social isolation, and lockdowns, to lessen the likelihood that people would spread the virus to one another (WHO, 2020). These preventive interventions are effective, according to the evidence currently available. Although various vaccines have lately been found and are in use, no effective medications have yet been found.
