Abstract

COVID-19, a viral respiratory disease, which was first reported in Wuhan, China, in 2019 and subsequently spread around the world, is caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. These days, all countries are breathing hard in the shadow of this virus. Carbon-based technologies such as carbon nanotubes, graphene, graphene oxide, and quantum dots can fight the virus. These materials can be a good alternative to classical protocols in combating viral diseases. Due to unique networks and the inherent characteristics, these carbon-based materials are interesting candidates for anti-viral applications that can fight viruses by a variety of mechanisms, including photothermal or reactive oxygen species production. So far, these materials have been reported for the preparation of diagnostic kits, anti-viral and self-sterilizing masks, vaccines, self-cleaning anti-viral surfaces, and other items. In this review, we have considered the newest momentous outcomes in carbon-based nanomaterials for utility in controlling and fighting the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
