The global calamity has led to a serious threat to human lives. To control the pandemic, special attention and efforts are taken to protect the person-to-person transmission. Social distancing must be maintained to prevent the spread of the disease. The only treatment option available is using broad-spectrum antiviral drugs such as  nucleoside analogs and also HIV-protease inhibitors that can alter the viral infection until the special antiviral agents are invented. The study aims to explore the associated climatic changes due to COVID-19.
