The COVID-19 pandemic has swept the entire world in a few months' time, much faster than any epidemic before. The scientist, doctors, and politicians worldwide are fervently working round the clock to bring an end to this pandemic which has otherwise stalled the lives of the populations. In the absence of any reliable treatment or vaccine, nonpharmaceutical interventions are presently are the mainstay to prevent and possibly end the COVID-19 pandemic. The development of herd immunity either through natural infection or induced through vaccine can bring down the epidemic. However, it may take a few more months before the normalcy returns.
