I am new to Raspberry Pi exchange, looks like I'm having a micro SD corruption problem.

I was about to plug a USB webcam into my Raspberry Pi 3 model b and I accidentally stepped in the power button!

I tried to boot my Raspberry pi again but at boot it just stopped at end Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (179, 7)

I don't want to reinstall the operating system and opencv either! Please Advice! I am in urgent need of fixing this! Thank you!

First copy the data you need from the card. Flash a new image of Raspbian or whatever suits you.

For the OpenCV part this guy got you covered: OpenCV for the Pi
