Abstract—In a very short interval, COVID-19 had spread all over the world and affected the medical and economic condition of all the developed, developing and underdeveloped countries, badly. Though it has been more than three years since its first onset, but even today its fear grips the entire world. Time and again, its various mutants have been detected. Early-stage diagnosis, reporting and isolation of the patient are the only ways to restrict the spread of virus of this nature. In addition, prediction models to help in this regard. This paper presents a novel Hybrid Model based on Deep Learning techniques. In this work, an authentic dataset has been collected, pre-processed and finally classified for the prediction of the disease. The model has been implemented using Python programming code. It’s accuracy, precision and recall has been calculated, and compared with that of Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) and Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) model.
