Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a positive-sense single-stranded RNA virus species with a zoonotic origin and responsible for the coronavirus disease 2019(COVID-19). This novel virus has an extremely high infectious rate, which occurs through the contact of contaminated surfaces and also by cough, sneeze, hand-to-mouth-to-eye contact with an affected person. The progression of infection, which goes beyond complications of pneumonia to affecting other physiological functions which cause gastrointestinal, Renal, and neurological complication makes this a life threatening condition. Intense efforts are going across the scientific community in elucidating various aspects of this virus, such as understanding the pathophysiology of the disease, molecular biology, and cellular pathways of viral replication. We hope that nanotechnology and material science can provide a significant contribution to tackle this problem through both diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. But the area is still in the budding phase, which needs urgent and significant attention. This review provides a brief idea regarding the various nanotechnological approaches reported for managing COVID-19 infection. The nanomaterials recently said to have good antiviral activities like Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and quantum dots (QDs) were also discussed since they are also in the emerging stage of attaining research interest regarding antiviral applications.
