This paper aims to generate a universal well-fitted mathematical model to aid global representation of the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) disease. The model aims to identify the importance of the measures to be taken in order to stop the spread of the virus. It describes the diffusion of the virus in normal life with and without precaution. It is a data-driven parametric dependent function, for which the parameters are extracted from the data and the exponential function derived using multiplicative calculus. The results of the proposed model are compared to real recorded data from different countries and the performance of this model is investigated using error analysis theory. We stress that all statistics, collected data, etc., included in this study were extracted from official website of the World Health Organization (WHO). Therefore, the obtained results demonstrate its applicability and efficiency.
