Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has become a major public health issue in humans, producing severe acute respiratory sickness. Since its first detection in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, it has spread fast over the world. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the causal virus, and the new epidemic disease has been dubbed Coronavirus Disease by the World Health Organization (WHO) (COVID-19). With over three million verified cases and over 244,000 deaths worldwide, COVID-19 continues to spread. COVID-19 does not yet have a specific treatment or vaccination. In the absence of pharmacological interventions, care and hygienic measures will be required to keep the virus under control and reduce human transmission. The pathogenesis, transmission, public health implications, and symptoms are all highlighted in this paper.
