In this paper, we subedit a search for a randomly moving Coronavirus (COVID-19) among a finite set of different states. We use a monitoring system to search for COVID-19 which is hidden in one of the n cells of the respiratory system in the human body in each fixed number of time intervals m. The expected rescue time of the patient and detecting COVID-19 has been obtained. Also, we extend the results and obtain the total optimal expected search time of COVID-19. The optimal search strategy is derived suing a dynamic programming algorithm. An illustrative real life example introduced to clear the applicability of this model.
