COVID-19 is a respiratory tract infection caused by a novel corona virus strain. Mild manifestations widely observed are flu-like symptoms, fever, malaise, and fatigue. Left untreated, this results in disease progression manifested by chest pain, dyspnoea, chest tightness, and death of the patients. COVID-19 has spread to every part of the world due to lack of specific treatment strategies regarding Corona Virus disease, treated symptomatically and an emergency call for vaccine development was initiated globally. In accordance, preventive measures were taken to control the spread of the corona virus. They include the implementation of the use of face masks, hand hygiene, respiratory hygiene, social distancing, lockdown, curfew, closing educational institutes, closing borders, awareness programmes, safety programmes, and advancements in the medical field. High risk groups were handled sensitively to head off the COVID-19 incident. Patients with psychological distress during lockdown were supported psychologically, airlines closed to prevent entry of new cases, and all passengers were screened and quarantined to prevent the spread of the disease. Due to the implementation of the lock down, almost all businesses, small-scale industries, and travel agencies were closed temporarily, leading to an economic crisis globally. Many countries with tourist spots were closed resulted in a lack of financial support in those countries. In that regard, many organisations have come forward to provide financial support. This review mainly focuses on the preventive strategies implemented by each country, their contingency plans, and financial measures assisted by various organisations to prevent the spread directly or indirectly.
