Coronavirus SARS-COV2 (COVID-19) represents the causative agent of a potentially fatal disease that is of great global public health concern. The pandemic outbreak of COVID-19 is rapidly spreading all over the world. This review aims to provide the role of Herbal Pharmaceutical in reducing the spread or complications of COVID-19 infection in the body of people. The evidence of generation of oxygen free radicals and oxidative stress is a key process in the onset of chronic disease which participate in the development of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome. Medicines of plant origin aroused a lot of interest due to their wide use, abundance, high efficacy and lack of secondary effects as an antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, antiviral efficacy or in their preventive efficacy of the immune system From it we suggest that the combination of conventional therapy and herbal medicine for patients infected with COVID-19 to reduce the complexities and development of the virus.
