Starting from the last of December to date, the pandemic onset of acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV2) causing the COVID-19 (corona virus disease 2019) throughout the world appears extremely fatal on the aspect of public health with the highest rate of mortality amongst all disease outbreaks within the last hundred years. In the meantime, lots of novel works to unravel the protective mechanisms against this viral attack have been conducted; and even the specific antiviral vaccine has undergone the trial. The molecular mechanisms underlying the viral epidemiology have been well documented. Aside to lots of reports consisting of the in depth knowledge about the genetics, pathogenesis, the antibody-enhanced viral entry; the host immunity escaping strategies of the respiratory viruses as well the SARS-CoV2, the present review summed up the major molecular and immunological issues, especially the escaping means of the host innate immunity related to COVID-19 briefly and simply as an incremental knowledge for the public awareness.
