Coronavirus is an enveloped virus that is diversely found in wildlife, domesticated animals, and humans. For the third time in many years coronavirus has crossed species to infect humans. The WHO on January 12, 2020, named the virus as 2019-nCoV and later on February 11, 2020, named as COVID-19. This novel agent belongs to the genus coronavirus having a high mutation rate. The objective of this review article is to describe the clinical features of the disease, its treatment, prevention, vaccine candidates, and their risk factors.
