Ever since the outbreak in Wuhan, China, a variant of Coronavirus named “COVID 19” has taken human lives in millions all around the world. The detection of the infection is quite tedious since it takes 3–14 days for the symptoms to surface in patients. Early detection of the infection and prohibiting it would limit the spread to only to Local Transmission. Deep learning techniques can be used to gain insights on the early detection of infection on the medical image data such as Computed Tomography (CT images), Magnetic resonance Imaging (MRI images), and X-Ray images collected from the infected patients provided by the Medical institution or from the publicly available databases. The same techniques can be applied to do the analysis of infection rates and do predictions for the coming days. A wide range of open-source pre-trained models that are trained for general classification or segmentation is available for the proposed study. Using these models with the concept of transfer learning, obtained resultant models when applied to the medical image datasets would draw much more insights into the COVID-19 detection and prediction process. Innumerable works have been done by researchers all over the world on the publicly available COVID-19 datasets and were successful in deriving good results. Visualizing the results and presenting the summarized data of prediction in a cleaner, unambiguous way to the doctors would also facilitate the early detection and prevention of COVID-19 Infection.
