COVID-19 that was originating from Wuhan in China has then evolved into various variants, which are specific to regions. Interestingly, COVID-19 highlights that the first strain travelled majorly to the Western Region and was possibly transforming during endemic transmission. There are approximately 93 mutations acquired by the novel virus, and the multiple strains are now grouped into three different clusters. This outbreak has led to a global pandemic never seen for more than a century. This viewpoint is focused on mutation hotspots, case fatalities in most affected nations, impacts of a cytokine storm, and influencing factors that may have amplified the pandemic, to culminate with a racial disparity in both the United States and the United Kingdom Leadership at the highest level of government is important to quickly averting the worst outcome of this pandemic as evident from other countries. Science is the key toresolving many problems; however, that may be professionally used by society and governments as to tackle the difficulty and challenges posed by COVID-19.
