A novel coronavirus now known as COV19 has emerged in the latest SARS outbreak. In Wuhan, China, the pandemic was first reported, but then disperse throughout the world very quickly. Computed tomography (CT) or X-ray has become a useful tool for precise diagnostics. Therefore, it is necessary to acquire an effective computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system to facilitate doctors in diagnosing infected cases of COVID-19 via image modality. We employed an open-source dataset containing 2482 CT images in which 1252 CT scans belong to COVID-19 infection and 1230 CT images belong to non-COVID-19 (dataset is accessible www.kaggle.com/plameneduardo/sarscov2-ctscan-dataset). A hybrid based deep learning model is proposed to diagnosis the patients with COVID-19 or not. In the proposed technique, four pre-trained Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN) models were applied using transfer learning: ResNet50, DenseNet201, MobileNet V2 and Inception V3 and accomplished 95.98% through DensNet201 architecture. However, the model achieved good results, which could reduce the burden on radiologists and healthcare centers. Still, diverse and more extensive datasets are required to assess the techniques in a practical situation.
