Microbial population had intense to have an infection on humans particularly commensals. Now there was a wide range of knowledge on diabetic as well as progression and immune function about the immunological studies.Nowadays the most priority was given to RNA viral genome or otherwise virome.Gene 16srRNA was used to analyse the specific bacteria in patients who are infected with the viral load. SARS-CoV-2 is newly emerging virus which causative agent of Corona virus (COVID-19). A phylogenetic analysis of SARS-CoV-2 is highly sub-clade with SARS-CoV. The immunological symptoms of COVID-19 are dysregulation of cytokine production, improper functioning of various organs and the barrier leakage.
