COVID-19 is a novel virus that spreads in multiple chains from one person to the next. When a person is infected with this virus, they experience respiratory problems as well as rise in body temperature. Heavy breathlessness is the most severe sign of this COVID-19, which can lead to serious illness in some people. However, not everyone who has been infected with this virus will experience the same symptoms. Some people develop cold and cough, while others suffer from severe headaches and fatigue. This virus freezes the entire world as each country is fighting against COVID-19 and endures vaccination doses. Worldwide epidemic has been caused by this unusual virus. Several researchers use a variety of statistical methodologies to create models that examine the present stage of the pandemic and the losses incurred, as well as considered other factors that vary by location. The obtained statistical models depend on diverse aspects, and the studies are purely based on possible preferences, the pattern in which the virus spreads and infects people. Machine Learning classifiers such as Linear regression, Multi-Layer Perception and Vector Auto Regression are applied in this study to predict the various COVID-19 blowouts. The data comes from the COVID-19 data repository at Johns Hopkins University, and it focuses on the dissemination of different effect patterns of Covid-19 cases throughout Asian countries.
