Coronavirus was first discovered during the year 1930 and since then, various coronaviruses like
HKU1, MERS-CoV , NL63 and SARS-CoV-2 have been found to infect humans. The COVID-19 pandemic
caused by SARS-CoV-2 is spreading at an alarming rate, thereby creating a health emergency around the world.
SARS-CoV2 is reported to be originated from a wet animal market of Wuhan, China. Since then, the world is
searching for effective ways to manage and treat the COVID-19 infection. The infections have already multiplied
with several folds compared to the number of persons infected by Middle East Respiratory Syndrome
Coronavirus and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. In order to fill the gap of knowledge about this virus,
several pieces of evidence are required to control it so more lives could be saved. The present review is based
on the publicly available literature in order to explore the knowledge regarding epidemiology, virology, diagnosis,
clinical features, pharmacological and therapeutic ways to treat the novel coronavirus. This can be helpful
in offering novel insights and potential therapeutics for fighting this disease.
