Corona virus is a big family of virus which cans origin disease from communal cold to additional severe disease such as MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV. A coronavirus is a new straining that has not been earlier recognized in humans. Recently, COVID-19 pandemic infection is spreading from human to human rapidly all over the world. Initially it was identified in China, December 2019. The main objective of this investigation is to identify and diagnosis the corona virus family rapidly. The RestNet-100 Convolutional Neural Network (RCNN) deep learning technique along with Logistic Regression (LR) classifier is used to identify the corona virus pandemic rapidly. The Artificial Intelligence (AI) application against COVID-19 are medical imaging, cough samples, molecular scale from protein to drug development, Lung delination etc.

Keywords: COVID-19, Artificial Intelligence, LR, Deep Learning, Diagnosis, Image acquisition.
