Jianjun Sun*   Pages 1 - 6 ( 6 )


The COVID-19 pandemic has caused millions of infections and hundreds of thousands deaths in the world. The pandemic is still ongoing and no specific antivirals have been found to control COVID-19. Integration of Traditional Chinese Medicine with supportive measures of Modern Medicine has reportedly played an important role in control of COVID-19 in China. This review summarizes the evidence of TCM in treatment of COVID-19 and discusses plausible mechanism of TCM in control of COVID-19 and other viral infectious diseases.
