Keywords:Covid19, Cinnamon, Eugenol, Cinnamaldehyde, Epoxy eugenol
The entire world health system has collapsed because of the attack by Coronavirus and currently, no vaccines are available to treat patients affected by this virus. In this work, we discuss the natural remedies to fight against Coronavirus. Based on an extensive review of existing literature and our comprehensive understanding of the efficacy of natural products in combating diseases, based on findings that cinnamon and its derived product exhibit substantial potential as a very effective therapeutic agent for the treatment of Covid-19. The physico-chemical and geometrical parameters obtained from DFT calculations are also presented to validate the present findings. Cinnamon, their constituents and products derived from them were not tested against Covid19. However, this study may open up a way to include new treatment strategies against coronavirus.
