Abstract—Viral lung disorders are increasing day by day throughout the globe.Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2 is the main cause for Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic. The disease is contagious during close contact and via respiratory droplets produced when people cough or sneeze. In this paper a method is proposed to detect the COVID-19 using chest X-Ray images. In order to classify the normal and COVID-19 cases, a CAD system is developed using Support Vector Machine (SVM) Classifier with a Graphical User Interface. An accuracy of 57.1% is achieved with the dataset of 15 COVID-19 and 15 normal X-Ray images.

I. INTRODUCTION
Viral lung disorders are increasing day by day throughout the world. Respiratory diseases like Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD), tuberculosis (TB), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia are most emerging health problem around the world. In which, COVID-19 is the recent pandemic (2019-20) all over the globe. Dated to 28th March 2020, around 5, 97,458 coronavirus cases and 27,370 deaths are accounted. The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, China 2019 recognized as a pandemic by World Health Organization (WHO). The virus can spread with close contact and via respiratory droplets produced when people cough or sneeze. People may also get affected by COVID-19 by touching any contaminated surface and then their face, eyes, nose and mouth. Common symptoms such as fever, cough and shortness of breath are seen first. Complications include pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome. Currently there is no vaccine or antiviral treatment against COVID-19. A large study has been started in the field of imaging which can be used to detect the COVID-19 by radiographs and computed tomography. Due to overlap with other infection such as adenovirus, imaging without confirmation by PCR is of limited specificity in identifying COVID-19
