Abstract: | A global health emergency termed as Corona Virus Disease COVID-19 became an international concern since December 2019. Novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a spherical or pleomorphic enveloped beta virus containing single- (positive-sense) RNA strand with a nucleoprotein surrounded by a capsid comprised of matrix protein. The envelope is surrounded by club-shaped glycoprotein projections. The virus spreads primarily from one person to another, typically through close contact or breathing drops caused when the infected person coughs or sneezes, hence it is necessary to keep away from a sick person more than two meters. Many pharmaceutical companies and testing organizations are therefore rushing to develop more reliable and rapid test kits to detect 19-nCoV among people suspected of being contaminated in only a few minutes and without the need to send samples to central laboratories. Coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccine latest update: with the production of a secure, reliable and accessible Covid-19 vaccine as the cornerstone to controlling the pandemic, research and testing are rising at a rapid pace around the world to find a cure for the current coronavirus.
