Mentions the pandemic as starting in China, with a subsequent worldwide spread. The viral
infection can seriously affect multiple organs, mainly lungs, kidneys, heart, liver, and brain, and may
lead to respiratory, renal, cardiac, or hepatic failure. Vascular thrombosis of unexplained mechanism
may lead to widespread blood clots in multiple organs and cytokine storms that are a result of overstimulation
of the immune system subsequent to lung damage, may lead to sudden decompensation due
to hypotension and cause more damage to liver, kidney, brain or lungs. Until now, no drug has proved to
be efficient in getting rid of the problem and controlling the pandemic mainly depends on preventive
measures. Many measures can be considered to prevent the worldwide spread of the viral transmission.
Polyunsaturated long chain fatty acids (PUFAs), medium chain saturated fatty acids (MCSFAs), and
their corresponding monoglycerides have high antiviral activities against the enveloped viruses, which
reached more than 10,000 -fold reduction in the viral titers in vitro and in vivo after testing for gastric
aspirate, and can contribute to the systemic immunity against the enveloped viruses.
