Int. J. Pharm. Res.
COVID-19 is a pandemic disease. The coronavirus also appears to cause higher rates of severe illness and death than the flu. But the symptoms can vary widely from person to person. This virus spreads primarily through droplets of Saliva or discharged from the nose when an infected person coughs. The health benefits of ginger and turmeric are pain-relieving, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune-booster. The aim of the study is to assess the awareness of the ginger and turmeric as a herbal cure for COVID-19. A selfadministered questionnaire comprising 15 questions was circulated to 100 people through an online google form. Before the study begins, the study detail was explained to the participants. The sample size of this study was 100. The data was collected and statistically analysed. In this study, 98% of the population was aware that one of the best medicines is ginger and turmeric for various diseases and 2% of the population were unaware of it. Around 97% of the population was aware that ginger and turmeric contain anti-inflammatory properties and 3% of the population was aware that ginger and turmeric contain anti-inflammatory properties. The overall result was positive, most of them aware of the role of ginger and turmeric on COVID-19. This proves an outright positive result. Through this survey, the majority of people were aware of ginger and turmeric as a herbal cure for COVID-19.
