Today COVID-19 proves as a very dangerous virus worldwide. It transmit from person to person very rapildly. At this situation there was no treatment was available to fight against COVID-19. So we try to give certain assumptions on the basis of there signs and symptoms. In these we do therotical study in that we found that certain herbs are useful and having very rarer sideeffects.


KEYWORDS: COVID-19, Echinacea, Goldeneseal, SARS, MERS.




General Introduction Novel COVID-19:

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-19.


COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. Covid19.[1]


Signs and Symptoms of COVID-19:

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are:

These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.[1]

General Medicinal Property of Echinacea:






Therotical Study Hypothesis On COVID-19:

Generally considering above symptoms and observing latest roport generated by WHO it is observed that common symptoms of COVID-19 is fever, tiredness and dry cough etc. It is also observed that death occur in most of those cases in which patient have weak immune system.


Due to weak immune system there is chances of increases death. So we do therotical study and it is found there some herb which may be help to reduce the chances of COVID-19.


We take two herbs namely:

1.     Echinacea

2.     Goldeneseal


Pair of Echinacea and goldenseal are already use to treat many diseases. From that evidences we only say that it may be used to cure COVID-19. But before implementation practical study is needed.


We observe that and it may be concluded that due to Antiviral activity of Echinacea inhibit the growth of virus. Also Echinacea also increases the immune power.
