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. The integration of Traditional Chinese Medicine with supportive measures of Modern
Medicine has reportedly played an important role in the control of COVID-19 in China. This review
summarizes the evidence of TCM in the treatment of COVID-19 and discusses the plausible
mechanism of TCM in control of COVID-19 and other viral infectious diseases.
Keywords: COVID-19, traditional chinese medicine, modern medicine, pandemic, (SARSCoV-2), antivirals.
