    Mostly death is happening due to panic among the people who hesitate to treat the people and secondly the fear within the affected person who is treated without the medicine ! Fear is the culprit than the CORONA top of that our media is hell bent to scare the people by showing score board on TV screens and blow the situation out of proportion in order to get the TRP !!
