That is the fifth Coronavirus as earlier, there have been already 4 pandemics J&Okay has witnessed previously whereby now we have seen that even when the pandemic went off or light away, it existed within the society although with much less influence.”
Dr Nisar mentioned that swine flu of 2009 is a working example. “Its epicentre was in Mexico. World Health Organisation (WHO) came up with a vaccine almost nine months after the pandemic.
