Coronavirus is a well-developed positive single-strand RNA virus and the hostname derived from the glycoprotein spikes and it surrounds the genome which is enclosed by nucleic capsid. Coronavirus belongs to the family Coronaviridae with six viruses. The transmission rate SARS-CoV-2 is higher than SARS-CoV1, because of the genetic recombinant of the spike protein in receptor binding domain region (RBD). The techniques for the finding and treatment of SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19 incorporate Simple Closed Tube Molecular Test, LAMP Test, and PCR test. But, clinically RT-PCR is widely used for the detection of SARS-CoV-2. The researchers are still on research to develop effective medicines and vaccines for the disease SARS-CoV-2. First this pandemic disease arises in China and the treatment followed by them is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which is 92.09% more effective when compared to all other medicine throughout the world and the motility rate decreases against SARS-CoV-2. Even though our treatment is based on Ayurveda, in addition to this Commercial medicine is also combined with Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for the treatment of SARS-CoV-2. In this review, we have comparatively analyzed the Traditional Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic Medicine with Commercial drugs.
