An communicable disease outbreak in the China in December 2019 has established with a record number of deaths in China and intermittent spread of infection to other countries. Coronaviruses (Corona: Crown like shape) were recognized in 1968 totally on the idea of their characteristics morphology as seen in microscope. Coronaviruses (CoVs) primarily cause multiple respiratory and internal organ infection in human and animals. Although the history of CoVs began in 1940’s, the identification of the first human CoVs were reported in 1960’s as causative agent for mild respiratory infection. In this review, we have to shortly explain coronavirus, Taxonomy, Types, structure and it's replication, Sign and symptoms, method of detection, pharmacological agent and also herbal treatment for management of covid 19.
