Abstract

World community is facing an unprecedented pandemic of novel corona virus disease (Covid-19) caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Corona Virus 2 (SARS-COV-2). Despite worldwide efforts to contain it, the pandemic is continuing to spread because of nonspecific drugs trial and still the exact medicine is yet to discovered. Ayurveda an ancient science has already described the pandemic with reference to Janapadodhwamsa along with its prevention and cure with reference to Aupsargika-Rogas. All kinds of Jwara are mentioned in our Ayurvedic classics with details of patho-physiology and management. Thus, Covid-19 whose main manifestation is Jwara can be managed and prevented by following the Ayurvedic daily regimen and treatment protocols which lessens the bad prognosis of Covid-19 thereby preventing the Post Covid Symptoms. Covid-19 can be managed by the treatment protocol mentioned in Jwara-Chikitsa, Janapadodhwamsa, Aupsargika Rogas while the Post Covid Symptoms can be managed by Jirna Jwara Chikitsa along with different forms Rasayana based on feasibility. Rasayana Chikitsa works well in the preventive as well as curative in both Covid-19 and Post Covid Symptoms. Role of Panchakarma in Covid-19 and Post Covid Symptoms has a special place in treating the Strotodushti of various level mainly the Pranavaha  Strotas. Vyadhikshamatva and Agni play an important role in developing Covid-19 and Post Covid Symptoms therefore, attention should be given to increase the Vyadhikshamatva and maintain the optimum power of Agni of the public health. In this way Covid-19 infection is prevented thereby minimizing the further health hazards. Therefore, Ayurvedic principles should be adopted to prevent and manage the Covid-19 infection by interpreting the elements of patho-physiology in Ayurvedic perspective so as to plan an effective management protocol and to recover the Swasthya.
