Coronaviruses are responsible for a developing budgetary, human and fatality trouble, as the causative factor of infections, for example, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). It has been well recognized that SARS-CoV-2 may survive under severe atmosphere circumstances. Hence, efficient containment approaches, for example, sanitizing, are crucial. Commonly, living compounds contribute a substance of chemical heterogeneity, with antiviral movement, and therefore can have efficacy as therapeutic tools toward coronavirus diseases. Here, in this review article, we have described the antimicrobial-based materials, which can be used to inhibit the spreading of the COVID-19. We have categorized these materials in three sections; (i) antimicrobial wall paint, (ii) antimicrobial papers and (iii) antimicrobial materials surface coating to be utilized as the antimicrobial-based materials for controlling the COVID-19. In the last section, we have given the concluding remarks with prospects in this area.
