It took four months for the Sars-CoV-2 pathogen that causes the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) to reach 1 million infections since it first surfaced in the Chinese city of Wuhan in late 2019 . Since then, the spread of the coronavirus has steadily accelerated across the world, compressing the time betwen a million new cases to a week now. The world as of latest count has recorded over 10.2 million cases and has lost a little over half a million lives to the pandemic.
