This paper provides a review of studies on coronavirus (COVID-19) and its transmission. Now it is necessary to understate the previous studies on the coronavirus to understand its dynamics and linkage with the backgr ound meteorological parameters. In our review, we found that the COVID-19 has a significant relationship w ith meteorological parameters such as temperature and humidity. The ideal temperature range for COVID-19 survival is 13- 24 °C, among which 19°C conductive and it can last about 60 days. However, the 50%-80% relative humidity range is ideal for the survival of COVID-19. The rainfall also influences the lifecycle of C OVID19, the favorable precipitation range is below 30 mm/ month. The spread of SARS-CoV-1 has been ob served a minimum impact of atmospheric aerosols but in the case of COVID-19. It can be transported by a hi gh aerosol concentration in a confined space so further detailed investigation on COVID-19 and atmospheric aerosols/ pollution are required. The life of COVID-19 is also influenced by the available material surface f or deposition.
