Abstract
A highly transmittable and pathogenic viral infection emerged at the end of 2019 in Wuhan, China, and rapidly spread across the World. This infection was named as coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) and the causative agent was named severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The careless and irresponsible attitude of the affected people of COVID-19 from the affected countries became the reason to import the deadliest COVID-19 to other countries. Unfortunately, Pakistan is also among those countries struck by the imported cases of COVID-19. The majority of the people in Pakistan are uneducated regarding COVID-19 and are unaware of the severity of COVID-19. Therefore, it is suggested that this is the time to take more strict measures to avoid the situation becoming out of control.
