Covid 19, a disease which created havoc in the world by its severe acute respiratory corona virus syndome-2 [SARS-coV-2], rigorous studies have been taking place to study the cause, pathogenesis, symptoms, treatment protocols of the disease. Ayurveda has considered it as a type of a janapadodhwamsa , the infection is caused due to virus which in Ayurveda is considered as, bhuta[microbes] which is a agantuja hetu [external factors]
This jivanu/microbe enters the body and affects the pranavaha srotas leading to cough and cold as primary symptoms. It manifests bhutabhisangaja jwara in the body. In later stage it becomes nija vyadhi [endogenous disease] and produces different type of jwara and targets the pranavaha srotas.This can be studied on basis of nidan panchak, satkriya kala, agni , bala , dosha Dushya samurchana in Ayurveda. These tools will help in treatment and diagnoses of disease at different stages. This study reviews the pathophysiology of covid 19 w.r.t ayurvedic concepts and methodology.
