The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) spread quickly worldwide, changing the everyday lives of billions of individuals. The preliminary diagnosis of COVID-19 empowers health experts and government professionals to break the chain of change and level the epidemic curve. The regular sort of COVID-19 detection test, be that as it may, requires specific hardware and generally has low sensitivity. Chest X-ray images to be used to diagnosis the COVID-19. In this work, a dataset of X-ray images with COVID-19, bacterial pneumonia, and normal was used to diagnose the COVID-19 automatically. This work to assess the execution of best in class Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) models proposed over ongoing years for clinical image classification. In particular, the modified pre-trained CNN-ResNet50 based Extreme Learning Machine classifier (ELM) has proposed for different diagnosis abnormalities such as COVID-19, Pneumonia, and normal. The proposed CNN method has trained and tested with the publicly available COVID-19, pneumonia, and normal datasets. The presented pre-trained ResNet CNN model provides accuracy, sensitivity, specificity, recall, precision, and F1 score values of 94.07, 98.15, 91.48, 85.21, 98.15, and 91.22, respectively, which is the best classification performance than other states of the art methods. This study introduced a computationally productive and exceptionally exact model for multi-class grouping of three diverse contamination types from alongside Normal people. This CNN model can help in the automatic diagnosis of COVID-19 cases and help decrease the burden on medicinal services frameworks.
