It has been widely spread worldwide and infected more than 28 million peoples in 215 countries, and more than 920,000 have now died from COVID-19. To date, no effective antiviral drugs or specific vaccines have been discovered yet. In this bewilderment, the potential therapeutic antiviral drug targets for the COVID-19 are repurposing to speed up the discovery of effective treatment. The most potential drug targets are continuously published, especially Favipiravir, Chloroquine, Hydroxychloroquine, and Remdesivir. Moreover, the antiviral target proteins and anti-host target proteins were reported continuously. This review summarized the current research studies of potential therapeutic drug targets being tested against the SARS-CoV-2. It will provide information relative to potential repurposing drugs to overcome the COVID-19.
