Expert Answer:

Covalent bond is a form of chemical bond between two non metallic atoms which is characterized by the sharing of pairs of electrons between atoms and other covalent bonds.
 
Ionic bond, also known as electrovalent bond is a type of bond formed from the electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions in a chemical compound. These kinds of bonds occur mainly between a metallic and a non metallic atom.
