Int. Res. J. Pharm.
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.
