The outbreak of novel coronavirus from Wuhan, China has become the global concern as more than 2000 people has been died and nearly 75,000 has been proved infected. History showed that, such outbreak is continually happening in every decade or two. Hence, the advancement in science and technology should be prepared of such situation. On the other hand, past studies suggested that the coronavirus outbreak mainly occurred or transmitted from animals and it very crucial to avoid consumption or use of such animals in normal life. The alertness should be strict because the virus is able to change their genetic makeup when it transmits from one animal to the other and, hence the protein target for antiviral agent also need a change. At this situation, it is necessary to find out as much target as possible to use the existing drugs or antiviral agent to control the spread.
