This study provides key insights into the contagious nature of SARS-CoV2 through analyses of T cell epitopes designed from SARS-CoV2 proteome. All top-scoring cytotoxic T cell epitopes from ORF1ab and helper T cell epitopes identified from all proteins were utilized to provide crucial insights into its pathogenesis. These T cell epitopes can be used as prophylactic or therapeutic multi-subunit vaccine or as diagnostic tools.
