Background: The aim of the present project is to provide basic knowledge about the treatment of Coronavirus via medicinal plants. Coronavirus (COVID-19, SARS-CoV, and MERS-CoV) as a viral pneumonia causative agent, infects thousands of people worldwide. There is currently no specific medicine or vaccine available and it is considered a threat to develop effective novel drug or anti-coronavirus vaccine treatment. However, natural compounds to treat coronaviruses are the most alternative and complementary therapies due to their diverse range of biological and therapeutic properties. Coronaviruses have large viral RNA Genomes and are single-stranded positive-sense RNA viruses. The nsp10/nsp16 protein is an important target because it is essential for the virus to replicate, the papain-like protease (Nsp3), the main protease (Nsp5), the primary RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (Nsp12) are also attractive drug targets for this disease. The main aim of this review is gathering information about medicinal plants with antiviral properties from plant database.
