Due to the rise of the global controversial as a result of COVID-19 and the challenge of obtaining plausible treatment against COVID-19, the detection of virus is crucial for predicting the severity of diseases, the rate of spreading so as to overcome infections. Here in we bringing the generative inorganic nanoparticles in context of fabrication and development as point of care (POC) material for diagnostic of Corona Virus. Inorganic nanoparticles have variety unique properties such as photocatalytic, magnetic, surface plasmonic, adsorption, and surface functionalization with biomolecules ligand such as nucleic acid, protein and antibodies which enables fabrication of viral diagnostic nanomaterials. In this article we address on how the properties can be integrated in diagnostic application for detection of (SARS–COV).
