Corona virus Disease 2019(COVID-19)has become a major health problem causing
severe acute respiratory illness in humans .It has spread rapidly around the globe since
its first identification in Wuhan,China,inDecember2019.Thecausative virus is called
severe acute respiratory syndrome corona virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), and the World Health
Organization (WHO) named the new epidemic disease Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).
The incidence of COVID-19 continues to increase with more than three million
confirmed cases and over 244,000 deaths worldwide. There is currently no specific
treatment or vaccine against COVID-19. Therefore, in the absence of pharmaceutical
interventions, the implementation of precautions and hygienic measures will be essential
to control and to minimize human transmission of the virus. In this review, we highlight
the epidemiology, transmission, symptoms, and treatment of this disease, as well as future
strategies to manage the spread of this fatalcoronavirus.
