The occurrence of emerging Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) disease (COVID-19) in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei, China, has been carried to global attention and declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on March 11, 2020. Various diagnostic kits to test for COVID-19 are available and several repurposing therapeutics for COVID-19 have shown to be clinically effective. The rapid genomic sequencing and open access data, together with advanced vaccine technology, for now, the only effective way of containing this viral outbreak is to implement all of the measures aimed at reducing transmission, including inhibiting people’s movement and social activities. This work means to present the actually immunology defense against the virus infection as coronavirus and the most recent finds about it, as well as a treatment and mainly the vaccine. This work proposal is that more studies and researches will be made to solve the problem.
