The new type of coronavirus, COVID 19, appeared in China at the end of 2019. It has become a pandemic that is spreading all over the world in a very short time. The detection of this disease, which has serious health and socio-economic damages, is of vital importance. COVID-19 detection is performed by applying PCR and serological tests. Additionally, COVID detection is possible using X-ray and computed tomography images. Disease detection has an important position in scientific researches that includes artificial intelligence methods.
