Since December 2019, scientists and engineers have tried to minimize and control Covid-19 spreading by different ways. These ways usually focused on cutting the circlet of Covid-19 infection by both direct and non-direct ways. As a polymer composites widely used in every day products, a short review of Polymer Nano Composites (PNCs) for antiviral activity against Covid-19 has been achieved. Firstly, virus’s structure, especially Covid-19 has been discussed. Then, different PNCs applications in biomedical that work against coronavirus have been presented and discussed. Also, comprehensive review of antiviral activity mechanisms have been reported with selected examples of PNCs and applications.
