Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the type of β-coronavirus that is responsible for the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic across the world. Human-to-human transmission of this disease may occur through respiratory droplets, sneezing, and touch. The most common symptoms of patients include fever, fatigue, dry cough, and diarrhea. Dysgeusia is the first recognized oral symptom. Reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction remains the standard test along with chest X-rays as the first-line imaging modality for the detection of SARS-CoV-2. Despite many treatment options are under trial still none of these can control its virulence potential.
