The aim of this review is to understanding and finding the mode of a synthetic chemical molecule or peptide that could crack outbreak of human corona virus nCoV-19 (COVID-19) to some extent or you can say that selecting the best from what has been already tried. To fulfill this aim we started searching research / review article database of PUBMED. After comparing possible options of combating the problem, peptide intervention and synthetic moieties have been found that could break the outbreak of COVID-19.
