Medicinal plants have potential therapeutic effects for different infectious diseases and have long been used to treat many diseases. Wild plants are well-known for their anti-viral activities and are also used in herbal treatment for COVID-19 infection. Various traditional medicine systems use plants for the treatment of COVID-19. The considerable therapeutic effect was achieved by using traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) during the 2003 outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), which brought new hope preventing and treating COVID-19.
