The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic represents an unpredicted health concern and declared as ‘public-health emergency of international concern” by the World Health Organization on 30 January 2020. The virus that is responsible for COVID-19, known as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has infected more than 160 million peoples and caused approximately 3.4 million deaths worldwide. Recent advancement in nanotechnology plays important role in diagnosing COVID-19 drug development programs. Zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO-NPs) have integrated into prevention of COVID-19. This review covers the use of NPs for the prevention of COVID-19. The tools for diagnosis of coronavirus, nano-based vaccines and NPs as a drug delivery agent for the handling of virus infection have been discussed.
