On 16 March, India confirmed 116 COVID 19 cases with the state of Maharashtra having the maximum number of cases. As the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread in the country, the question that we as Indians are trying to answer is: whether India will be able to tackle its menace, or are we going to witness another Italy or S.Korea?

For almost a month, no new cases were reported in India, however, on 8 March, five new cases of coronavirus in Kerala were still reported, and since then, the facts have been rising affecting **14** states, till now.
