Increasing population and increased intensity of crop production led to the invention of pesticides, among which organophosphates are extensively commercialized and used as commercial pesticides. Their toxicity leads to millions of deaths every year. The insecticide enters the food web and inhibits acetylcholinesterase enzyme production, which upturns into respiratory dysfunctioning and immuno-toxic production. SARS-CoV-2, a natural micro immuno-toxin, serves a similar mechanism over our body. It affects both the respiratory system and autoimmunity. The scope of this review article is to brief and explain the mechanism and relation between these two co-partners and their futuristic impact on the world. Henceforth, it is also recommended to utilize cost-effective homemade natural pesticides and integrated farming practices to provide secure and healthy food production and curb the future health hazards caused by SARS-CoV-2 and organophosphates. 

Keywords: Immune-toxins, Natural Pesticides, Organic Farming, Organophosphates, Pesticides, SARS-CoV-2.
