Mankind is battling the Outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by Novel Coronavirus; Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-COV-2). Besides that, due to the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in sewage and stool samples, its transmission through water routes cannot be abandoned. Efficient treatment of wastewater thus becomes of the utmost importance. In preventing the spread of the virus to the environment, techniques for eliminating the virus from wastewater must be installed. The key goal of wastewater treatment is to make human and industrial effluents to be disposed of with effective actions to negate health risks and threats to the environment. Even more, research is needed to investigate the survival of SARS-CoV-2 in the environment, the transferability via wastewater, and the ability to infect humans through the fecal-oral pathway.
