The field of health science accumulates large amounts of data with diverse and correlated attributes. Processing such type of data requires specialized techniques. Data analytics techniques are suitable for that purpose. Statistical evaluation is an important step for understanding health data. In the current scenario of the outbreak of novel Corona Virus (COVID 19), we have utilized the Novel Corona Virus 2019 data collected by John Hopkins University to extract important and interesting insights. A complete analytical study comprising of exploratory analysis, time series analysis and geographical analysis has been attempted so as to assess the impact and spread of the virus in most affected countries like China and also the remaining world. The resulting insights would help the public, governments and the research community to understand the gravity of the situation and take remedial measures. The entire analysis has been carried out in R.
