The entire world is now in a state of caution since the outbreak of a COVID-19 pandemic. The overwhelmingly high spread and mortality rate due to the SARS-CoV-2 virus has not only made headlines but also raised alarming concerns for the human community. Applications of nano-biotechnology along with machine learning have excellent potential in dealing with serious health issues and mainly in medical science. This review article aims to augment the multidimensional use of silver nanoparticles especially in the fabrication of textiles and face masks, which could represent a new avenue for prevention. Further, treatment or disinfection of COVID-19 along with other pathogens using silver nanoparticles and the use of machine learning, which could help in risk assessment.

Keywords: Silver nanoparticles, COVID-19, super-hydrophobic textile, nanoparticle filter, artificial intelligence, and risk
