COVID-19 pandemic is unique and unprecedented in several aspects and has challenged health care systems. Epidemics gained global attention as many viral diseases do not have medicines or vaccines and the medicines available for certain diseases possess adverse effects. Siddha system plays particular attention to the host and recommends measures for a healthy lifestyle rather than the mere prescription of medicine. NochiKudineer is a poly herbal formulation from Siddha literature “Noigalukku Siddha parigaram. It consists of totally four active herbal ingredients such as Vitexnegundo (Nochi), Piper nigrum (Milagu), Allium sativum(VellaiPoondu), Piper betle (Kammaaruvetrilai). This NochiKudineer is indicated for Kulirsuram (Fever with chills) Vishasuram (Toxic fever), Maaralsuram (Periodic fever), Thalaivali (Headache). We must remember the basic principle in medicine that ‗‗prevention is better than cure.‘‘ In this scenario, the plant kingdom remains largely unexplored that could possess several bioactive molecules of therapeutic importance. Technological interventions are the need-of-the-time to dissect the medicinal value of plants for identifying suitable phytocompounds that could serve as potential molecules in treating SARSCoV-2. This article sheds highlight on the potential of plants and plant-based drugs for their use in treating COVID-19. We enumerate the plantbased medicines being used for treating different viral infections and categorically explain the importance of identifying novel biomolecules from plants that could be used for therapeutic applications. We underline that such biomolecules can work in synergy with synthetic drugs to provide enhanced antiviral effects.

Keywords: Siddha, Nochikudineer, Antiviral.
