The current outbreak of Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has become a health emergency of international concern since last December 2019. At the same time, the coronavirus pandemic also caused an economic crisis worldwide. All countries worldwide are competing to generate a qualified strategic plan for resolving this problem. Vaccine, treatment, and detection are the keys to control this pandemic. Global attempts to produce a suitable vaccine are ongoing in many laboratories. However, based on the failure of several previous vaccines, such as Ebola and dengue fever, has stimulated researchers to develop an effective and quick treatment. Effective treatment depends on the effectiveness of the detection method. Thus, a real-time, selective, and accurate detection method is urgently needed to detect if a person has been exposed to COVID-19. This paper is designed to discuss the current situation in controlling COVID-19 by several detection methods. The progress of each method is summarized and compared. Other information regarding the virus, such as the origin, transmission, and biomarkers of the virus, is also explained. The case progress of COVID-19 and its future directions also are discussed.
