J. Appl. Nat. Sci.
Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory coronavirus2 (SARS-CoV-2), is an extremely infectious disease and has already infected almosthree million persons in more than two hundred countries. Based on our currenknowledge of this virus and in the absence of a vaccine, this article is an attempt to pro-pose ways to prevent, treat and control COVID-19 virus, using linear lipid molecules such as sodium stearate (a major component of ordinary bar soap) for hand sanitization, mouth wash, gargling, steam inhaling and as lungs inhaler along with zinc and copper to trap and inactivate COVID-19. Sunbathing will boost desperately needed a good immune sys-tem. The ancient Indian techniques of Yoga (Developing inherent power in a balanced manner), Pranayama (Retention and Extension of the breath), Jal-Neti (Nasal irrigation bsaline water) and Havan (Holy fire ritual) will also help in controlling this epidemic (COVID-19) of gargantuan proportions.
