Despite modern advances in medicine, coronavirus disease COVID has caused more than 1 million reported deaths in less than a year. Aside from the death toll, the pandemic has triggered significant emotional, physical, and economic problems around the world.

It found that almost one in three of them had visited a doctor more than five times before receiving their diagnosis. Women, as well as low-income patients, experienced longer delays.
