COVID-19 has spread globally since its discovery in Wuhan, Hubei province, China in December 2019. The viral etymology was initially found out to be from bats and it spread like a wild fire all over China and through its travelers all over the World, thereby getting categorized as a Global Pandemic by WHO. The aim of this review article is a critical analysis of diagnostic and surveillance technologies for SARS-CoV-2 and their performance characteristics. This comprehensive article reviews about new technologies that can be developed from existing technologies that can help in tackling this pandemic and many more such in the near future. We describe ways and methods with which we can extract as much useful data as possible and use this data as a powerful tool to conclude important results. This article will throw light on existing technologies that have been used and being studied that can be applied to tackle epidemics and pandemics. This article stresses on existing methods that can be applied by Governments and Civic bodies to take a stochastic approach in these unpredictable and testing times towards detecting symptoms and conduct random tests in areas where the people show more symptoms and are likely prone to be affected.
