In the year 2019 specifically, on March 11th, the coronavirus illness two thousand nineteen (COVID-19) was announced a worldwide epidemic due to its rapid spread and lack of treatment options. As a result, infected individuals must be identified and quarantined quickly to prevent the illness from spreading. The method used to test for COVID-19 is called real-time-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), which has problems with having low sensitivity and taking an extended amount of time. Because chest computed tomography (CT) scans are more sensitive than RT-PCR, it follows that such scans can be employed for diagnostic purposes. This study developed a deep convolutional neural network (CNN) approach to detect COVID-19 using CT scan images. An architecture of deep learning (DL) called convolutional neural network computed tomography scans (CT-CNN) was utilized to efficiently identify COVID-19. The findings of our suggested model are highly encouraging, with an accuracy of 96.14%, an F1 score of 96.21%, and a recall of 97.53% when it comes to classifying CT scans as either infected or not infected by COVID-19.
