Over 200,000 lives have been claimed by Covid-19 all over the world . The impact of this disease has led the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare COVID-19 as a global disaster . Diverse precautions have been established to wipe out this disease and hence, prevent it from causing severe damages on earth . However, these precautions could not fully eradicate the disease since there is still a lack of a preventive vaccine or any antiviral treatments . Hence, there is a crucial need to find a platform where novel antiviral drugs can be developed, and natural compounds serve as an excellent source where this discovery can be found . This brief study aims to provide a general review of some of the recent researches, in which natural compounds were studied for their antiviral effects.
