Covid-19 isn’t just a viral disease that proved to be lethal, it is something that affected the lives of people in unimaginable ways. With the waves of infection came the waves of panic, and the first panic wave was the time when there was no vaccine. The world went to chaos when the virus took to the masses and no cure was available at hand. 

The world has seen a lot of epidemics and multiple pandemics to date and they have truly wreaked havoc on humanity. But we have always bounced back in one way or another. The same happened with the ongoing pandemic. Able scientists and doctors around the world took matters into their hands to make a cure for this lethal disease. A lot of them lost their lives in the process, however, they created the antidotes of the virus that took the effort of interspecies transmission just to bring the doom a step closer to humans. 

But do we know the struggle behind all that? HBO is bringing up another documentary by the name of How to Survive a Pandemic, which will put enough light on the struggle and efforts it took to create an accepted form of treatment for the Covid-19.
