Abstract

The topic and title concern the modern technology study and review with the aid and aiming the therapeutic interpretation and overall emphases on a novel corona virus disease called COVID-19, a respiratory disorder; to overcome the disease and its prevention, the article is determined here. As the modern technique to demonstrate the overview of the virus and its cause, prevention, treatment and how the so-called modern technique, namely “nanotechnology” and its various components and factors are valuable and helpful with their pharmacological effects, implications, and other therapeutic interventions in treating the viral infection is discussed and reviewed. Several essential factors with nanoparticles, nanomaterials, and technology-based applications by reduction of spreadability of infections with nanoformulation antibiotics and pharmaceuticals are demonstrated in the article. For increased patient and healthcare worker safety, nano-based antimicrobial technologies are included too. Again binding, entrance, replication, and budding of COVID-19 can be targeted by the antiviral properties of nanoparticles which is actual need of the study. One factor that restricts its use and should be further researched and altered is the toxicity-related inorganic nanoparticles observed and need to investigate further for vigilance, one must say. The article describes several facts about nanotechnology in treating and preventing infection and its therapeutic interventions.

Keywords: Nanotechnology, therapeutic interventions, Covid-19, nanoparticles, nanomaterials
