Abstract

  The 2019-novel coronavirus (CoV) is a major source of disaster in the 21st century. However, the lack of specific drugs to prevent an attack is a major need at this current point of time. COVID-19 is a disease occurred due to corona virus. In this regard, I have conducted a systematic review to identify possible treatment of corona virus (CoV). The search based on it including herbal and allopathic drugs as no any vaccines and medicines are available to treat COVID-19. Till 22nd September 2020, the numbers of patients currently infected are 31,174,627 from which 962,613 people were died. Thus, this review provides beneficial treatment in current situation. Starting from 2005 to 2020 some major studies have been done to treat this corona virus including traditional Chinese medicines. First time this disease was observed in chine in 2002, so after 2003 the research was started on corona virus, currently known as COVID-19.
