Abstract

In March 2020, the WHO declared COVID-19 as a pandemic. At present, the curative vaccine has not yet been developed. Early detection and efficient control of the route of transmission are still the most effective way to fight the COVID-19 outbreak. Patients with confirmed COVID-19 pneumonia have typical imaging features that can be helpful in early screening of highly suspected cases and in evaluation of the severity and extent of disease.
