The Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) outbreak, which started from a single city in China has been detected in 104 nations and territories. However, based on the epidemiological results obtained from the action response plan in China and some other nations, definite evidence is available to suggest that the risk of transmission can be effectively interrupted using non-pharmacological interventions. The need of the hour is to be ready with the emergency response teams, enhance the capacity of the health system to improve detection and care facilities, improve the human resource-logistics-infrastructure, and facilitate research activities for the development of drugs/vaccines. In conclusion, in the global battle against the COVID-19 outbreak, only our preparedness, readiness and response plan will be our biggest weapons and thus we have to improve ourselves in all the dimensions and mount a well-coordinated response.
