Coronavirus which is an irresistible sickness was spread overall pandemic. First events of obscure etiology in Wuhan, China. This distinguished a novel coronavirus now named as a SARS COV 2. It is secured by fat protein which is a solitary abandoned RNA genome. The infections are round or pleomorphic with wrapped particles.SARS-COV incites a huge scope starting in China and the new infection is by all accounts infectious and the COVs have become the significant pathogens of developing respiratory maladies. The indications of the beginning periods of the infection are vague. The death rates for cases all around stay between 1% to 2%. Rapid duplication of infections is additionally an entangled factor in identifying the ailment. Consequently the recognition of this sickness can be distinguished by different strategies like RT-PCR (Real time Polymerase Chain Reaction), CT (Computed Tomography) and so forth… RT-PCR is one among them. Detection of infection by RT-PCR in clinical examples offers the alternative of conclusion in the beginning periods of the ailment and its application incorporates genotyping, mutation detection. RT-PCR techniques during the initial hardly any long periods of ailment have been low and much better affectability is after day 6 of the ailment. RT- PCR technique which is found to be a standard method for diagnosing the positive cases. This helps in finding true negativity and rule out the serological positive cases.
