Author(s): Abdelhakim Abdelhadi

 Methodology: Since January of 2020, the world has been going through a crisis that called coronavirus (COVID-19) and in March, 2020, COVID-19 has become a pandemic. Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus. The strong danger posed by the COVID-19 is the significant speed of its spread, which leads to major problems in the large number of infected people versus the lack of hospitals. COVID-19 caused a lot of losses for everyone including money, lives, and time. It’s difficult to control the spread of the COVID-19 especially for the countries where COVID-19 has already been spread. Governments and World Health Organization (WHO). Work together to reach the best precautionary measures that would prevent the spread of the COVID-19 and enable governments to control it.

Purpose: In this research, some of Lean Manufacturing tools and concepts will be used to control and limit the spread of COVID-19.

Findings: This research introduced some major Lean manufacturing principles and illustrates that these principals can be applied in to help in overcoming pandemic that the world is facing now. In such a disaster, people should use every single tool that could help them in order to overcome such a problem. By applying lean manufacturing to this pandemic, we will reduce the number of spread between.

Originality: This research is original and based on solid literature review.
