There is a growing concern that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS‑CoV‑2) infections will continue to rise, and there is now no safe and effective vaccination available to prevent a pandemic. This has increased the need for rapid, sensitive, and highly selective diagnostic techniques for coronavirus disease (COVID-19) detection to levels never seen before. Researchers are now looking at other biosensing techniques that may be able to detect the COVID-19 infection and stop its spread. According to high sensitivity, and selectivity that could provide real-time results at a reasonable cost, nanomaterial show great promise for quick coronavirus detection. In order to better comprehend the rapid course of the infection and administer more effective treatments, these diagnostic methods can be used for widespread COVID-19 identification. This article summarises the current state of research into nanomaterial-based biosensors for quick SARS‑CoV‑2 diagnosis as well as the prospects for future advancement in this field. This research will be very useful during the COVID-19 epidemic in terms of establishing rules for designing nanostructure materials to deal with the outbreak. In order to predict the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, we investigate the advantages of using nano-structure material and its biosensing applications.
