To prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection, there is an urgent global demand for the protection of daily handling surfaces from viral contamination. To combat the present pandemic, nanotechnologists and material scientists offer sustainable options for developing antiviral surface coatings for various substrates such as fabrics, plastics, metal, wood, and food. They develop or propose antiviral surfaces by coating them with nanomaterials that interact with the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein to prevent the virus from infecting the host cell. It was discovered that polymer nanocomposites made from nanoparticles can be used to create useful coating materials. The numerous elements of antiviral nanocoatings are discussed in this article, including the method of interaction with the Corona Virus, the various types of nanocoatings developed for diverse substrates.
