The way viruses connect to the host needs to be well understood to establish health care safety preventive measures. Investments in research and adoption of criterious biosafety standards are necessary for the control of infections caused by viruses. In the absence of medicines and vaccines, all health care providers have readapted local measures protocols to their protection, and to reduce potential virus transmission. These protocols are being readjusted as new studies are being launched, for this paper aims to review COVID-19 publications that have been shed to light throughout this pandemic that have strong scientific evidence about SARS-CoV-2, to help professionals to carefully read, and to be updated in order to establish health care guidelines safely.
