Health is considered as a nucleus to the life of a nation. Absence of it can create disharmony to an individual and society at large. Recent phenomena of COVID-19 pandemic outbreak which has penetrated into the lives of masses has caused major chaos and adverse effect to the health and wellbeing of people globally. No doubt that absence of health may create a magnetic wave to attract abundance of funds for the purpose of mitigating or dealing not only with such pandemic, but for other types of diseases that emerged as well. This is partially because wealth and health have an interrelationship that is hard to separate.
