Abstract

For the past two years, people around the globe have been continuously under the wrath of the pandemic. This global outrage of the novel coronavirus turned out to be a challenging “Biohazard”. The unexpected outbreak of the virus bowed out to be one of the worst disasters that have affected the worst so far. Disasters do not arise of proclamation. Prediction of a possible mishap cannot always be detected. For instance, the recent Ukraine–Russia crisis that began in late February 2022 resulted in war. This unpredicted consequence resulted in a huge number of refugees including other vigilant loss of life, infrastructure, property, flora-fauna, and it was even attributed to micro-climate changes in the region due to nuclear attacks.
