Introduction: After throwing light on COVID-19 infection, its transmission, available treatment options in Part I, this article has focused on various preventive measures proposed to deal with the disease. Aim: The Part II of this review article aimed to provide the different measures advocated to prevent COVID-19. Methods: An electronic search was performed in PubMed and Google Scholar databases with the keywords "Corona virus, COVID-19, World Health Organization, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, SARS-CoV-2, Prevention, Vaccines" from January 2017 to August 2022. Results: A total of 42 articles were included in the current review. Conclusion: The theoretical evidence does advocate the use of vaccines to be good candidates, but practically, no guarantee can be given that an individual will never be infected. One needs to take personal precautions such as hand sanitizing, wearing a mask in public places, and maintaining social distancing till a permanent cure is procured.
