The new Coronavirus which made an outbreak of Severe acute respiratory syndrome was found in the year of 2019 in one of the provinces of People’s Republic of China. Severe acute respiratory syndrome, Middle east respiratory syndrome and COVID-19 causative viruses belong to the same family. The complete name given to COVID-19 virus is Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 or in short SARS-CoV-2. World Health Organization announced this new Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) as a pandemic after detailed assessment.

Ayurveda have categorized viruses under the term “Bhutas” and microbe caused infection is called as “Bhutabhishangajam”. Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has very close similarity with Vata-Kapha predominant sannipata jwaram (Fever with predominance of all doshas especially Vata and Kapha). Janapadodhwamsa niyam is a chapter by Acharya Charaka have clearly mentioned about the nature as well causes of a pandemic disease. Ayurveda also have listed about the internal and external causes of a disease in various classical textbooks. Viruses are one among the external cause of a disease as per Ayurveda.

What are the Causes of COVID-19?

COVID-19 is caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2. Avoiding close contact and avoiding travel to pandemic affected areas will reduce the chances of getting infected.

Ayurveda also adds low immunity, low strength and low mental health as the causes of getting severely affected during a pandemic. A pollution which happens within our minds and pollution of common environmental factors may create a situation of reduced immune strength. An individual with high immunity and good mental health will not be affected  by the difficulties of a viral infection. Being positive in case of virus and being symptom less shows the proper immune system activity within a human being.
