The third stage of the disease, Pandemic. The rise in the cases of Covid-19 started growing exponentially and were started being detected all over the globe. The word Pandemic is combination of two Greek word Pan, meaning All, and Demos, meaning People. This is a term given to a disease which is been reported internationally and is growing. Till March 16th there were more than 180k confirmed cases of Covid -19 in more than 118 countries. The disease has caused lockdown in multiple countries.
