Ever since the global outbreak of COVID-19, which is an infectious disease caused by the novel SARS-CoV-2 (Novel Coronavirus (nCov-19), scientists and researchers across the globe have been looking and searching for a cure that is quick, efficient and affordable. SARSCoV- 2 spread in 215 countries and territories around the globe with +15 million reported cases and +670k deaths worldwide until July 24, 2020. Healthcare facilities across the globe are trying to manage, control, and prevent the spread of this submicroscopic entity entering the macroscopic cosmos. Patients infected with COVID-19 frequently present with a respiratory infection that is similar to pneumonia and a cough. We do not yet have an effective vaccination to battle the sickness; therefore, the only treatment option for patients is symptomatic therapy. In the meantime, however, it could be useful to have a look at the most recent research on immuneenhancing herbs and how they might be incorporated into daily life if the impact of nCov-19 on an individual cannot be stopped entirely but can at least be mitigated.
