The exponential spread of 2019- Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has led a public health
emergency with 3156 confirmed cases by 6th April 2020 in Pakistan. The virus affects people
of all age and ethnic groups but with increased fatality rate among the elderly population,
with co-morbids. With no treatment or vaccine authorized, the virus has kept the world under
partial or complete lock-down. Although we are going through a challenging time for our
health system, economy, frontline health workers and public health officials, its crucial to
remain calm and think about what good we can grasp from it.
