Currently, many countries around the world are facing the crisis of COVID-19. Most of them cannot solve the problem of the spread of COVID-19. This study aims to analyze the four main pandemics’ prediction models through their advantages, shortages, the basic structures, appropriate scene as well as the improvement methods to ameliorate the whole statistical system of COVID-19. Today, the researchers have widely criticized the means and medium of data collection for the sake of pandemic spreading. Although the government has undertaken steps on the control of COVID-19, there were always many positive cases appeared at one time so that the viruses spread widely. In summary, this study offers new in sight for arranging the pandemic’s prediction method against the potential of the outbreak of all the epidemics.
