Coronavirus-2019 (Covid-19) is a deadly virus that has flu symptoms. It originated in a small town called Wuhan (China) and it soon rapidly spread across the world, starting an era of a pandemic. In many countries lockdown was imposed due to this pandemic. This illness causes pneumonia in many situations. As radiography images can be used to monitor pulmonary infections. Therefore, this study helps to detect and analyze chest X-rays by using deep learning models and transfer learning models with the intention that it can provide strong tools to medical doctors and workers to deal with this deadly virus. Specialized deep learning models have been introduced to detect pneumonia, it is assumed that detection of pneumonia will increase the chances of a patient having Covid-19 infection. Furthermore, health tools are suggested for predicting whether a patient is diagnosed with Covid-19, normal and viral pneumonia. From the results of experiment, the CNN model gave an accuracy of 71% and VGG-19 model with 91%, InceptionV3 with 83% and Xception model with 89% of accuracy. By comparing the models CNN model outperforms over other three models. To conclude, these findings suggest that implemented model’s capacity to assess the seriousness of COVID-19 lung infections might be utilized for health as well as medication performance assessment, particularly throughout the critical care unit.
