Abstract: In spite of several advances in healthcare, viruses are emerging and re-emerging as one of the significant reasons for morbidity and mortality on the planet. Currently, COVID-19 has arosed as the most fierce and affright viral infection to be handled by the human race, due to its nature of fast acceleration and slow deceleration. Neither vaccines nor drugs are currently available for prevention, prophylaxis and treatment of SARS-CoV2 infection in humans. Ayurveda, being the “science of holistic living and art of natural healing”, could offer potential solutions for the prevention and management of COVID-19 infection. In this article, an attempt to find possible solutions by analysing the disease profile of COVID-19 using ayurvedic framework is made. Trividha bodhya sangraham is the guiding tool to analyse anukta vyadhi (novel or unsaid diseases). Different six levels of care i.e., preservation, promotion, protection, adjuvant/add-on, stand-alone and supportive recipes may be applied on case-to-case basis. Ayurveda based broad-spectrum antiviral agents could give extra assurance for everybody from novel viral diseases, reinforcing to leverage the potentials of Ayurveda. ‘NAMASTE’ is an acronym introduced to signify the protective measures of corona infection.
