SARS-CoV2 is now spreading all over the world and this pandemic interferes the daily life of human. The severity of this viral infection has been exceeded twice more than the previously reported viral outbreak. Scientists are trying to find out a suitable strategy to combat this viral infection and in this case they are trying to develop vaccines and side by side they are looking for specific drugs. In addition to searching new drugs, scientists are trying drug repurposing strategy. Marine areas are a vast resources of many suitable candidate drugs for human welfare and in this regard marine bioactive compounds would be a valuable source having antiviral activity that could be accepted as a suitable drug for the treatment of SARS-CoV2. In this review article, some prospects of marine drugs have been discussed though it needs further in deep research.
