Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary field of science which deals with physics, chemistry, material science, and engineering sciences. The applications of Nanotechnology cover almost all the branches of science and technology. In late 2019, SARS-CoV-2 virus became the cause of infection for coronavirus infectious disease (COVID-19). The outbreak of 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) becomes a challenge for Hospitals and laboratories due to the large number of samples testing the presence of the causative pathogen. Many Scientists and researchers are devotedly working on finding out rapid immunodiagnostic methods to find positive cases. Nano based drugs offer a new therapeutic scheme against the wide range of bacterial pathogens. In this review article, the role of nanomaterial is focused on the fight against COVID-19.

Keywords: COVID-19, nanotechnology, nanoparticles, nano medicine, treatment, diagnostics.
