Ayurveda is not an old medical science and nor developed through experimental efforts by research scholars in ancient period as perceived by some. But it is the direct gift of supreme soul to mankind which is practically effective at any time of need. Detailed information about viruses like SARS-CoV-2 is already described in Ayurveda in the name of Rakshas or Pishacha (microorganisms invisible to naked eyes). Management of kaphajjwar or vata kaphajjwar or other types of fever as per their manifestation may be adopted for COVID-19 and management of swas (asthma)can be adopted for emergency situation to get improved anticipated results. The causes of epidemic or pandemic diseases, prevention as well as controlling methods have been described under Janapad dhwansaneeya adhyaay (chapter about mass casualty). The purpose of this study is to disseminate the available knowledge of Ayurveda regarding novel coronavirus, epidemic or pandemic diseases in the present scenario of COVID-19 outbreak, to all health streams. Further research may be taken up to establish a scientific treatment protocol as well as preventive measures for COVID-19 outbreak successfully. Conclusion may be drawn that Ayurveda is not just an ancient medical science but it has accommodated solutions for future incoming problems also. Trial is needed to substantiate them in present scientific protocol.
