Abstract

As of September 20, 2021, the entire planet has reported 218.5 million COVID-19 cases, with 4.52 million fatalities. Lockdowns and softening measures have been thrown into turmoil throughout the world since the outbreak. Our social life will only return to normal once an appropriate vaccine is produced and proper authorized preventive techniques are implemented. To tackle this pandemic, governments and health experts all around the globe are experimenting with a range of measures and preventative strategies. Certain countries are considered to be more successful than others in terms of providing safety to their inhabitants and increasing their economic activities. A plethora of vaccinations have been produced, and a research anthology has been published. However, medical personnel are still searching for a viable treatment to limit this pandemic.
