Natural essential oils with its antimicrobial effects destroys the coronavirus pathogen. Yet it's not being used in hospitals? A special thanks to US National library of medicine & national institute of health for its fascinating report.Click here for Antimicrobial properties of plant essential oils against human pathogens:
"The essential oils extracted from various MAPs possess strong antimicrobial activity against various bacterial, fungal, and viral pathogens. The reactivity of essential oils depends upon the nature of their functional groups and orientation. Essential oils are considered to be potent against a diverse range of pathogens" says Department of Botany at Gandhi Faiz-E-Aam College in India.
"In this study, we examined the effect of a natural-based product consisting of a synergistic blend of botanical oleoresins and essential oils in a liquid emulsion designated QR448(a) against IBV in vitro and in vivo. To our knowledge, this is the first report on the virucidal activity of botanical extracts against a coronavirus in vivo. The data are important because these types of compounds might also be useful to control other coronaviruses like the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) as well as other enveloped viruses like avian influenza virus and Newcastle disease virus." says Department of Population Health, Poultry Diagnostic and Research Center at the University of Georgia, USA.
"The antimicrobial effects of essential oils derived from MAPs are the basis of copious applications, in various revenue-generating sectors such as pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, cosmetic, perfume, agronomy, and sanitary industries [1–3]. In the following section, we have broadly discussed the antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral effects of essential oils obtained from MAPs."

FROM 2016! "At present, various essential oils may be a promising alternative against viral infections . However, the detailed understanding on the antiviral action of essential oils still requires more research. Some of the reported mechanisms of action of essential oils are reported in this section. Essential oils might interfere with virion envelopment, designed for entry into host cells. For instance, the sesquiterpene triptofordin C-2 was reported to suppress the synthesis of viral proteins and inhibit the early gene expression process of the HSV-1 virus" says Department of Population Health, Poultry Diagnostic and Research Center at the University of Georgia, USA.
Further Updated in 2019 "Conclusion and Future Prospects -The essential oils extracted from various MAPs possess strong antimicrobial activity against various bacterial, fungal, and viral pathogens. The reactivity of essential oils depends upon the nature of their functional groups and orientation. Essential oils are considered to be potent against a diverse range of pathogens. Essential oils may disrupt the cell membrane of the targeted pathogens by increasing membrane permeability, inducing leakage of vital intracellular constituents, and interrupting the cellular metabolism and enzyme kinetics of the targeted pathogens. The present study reveals more information on in vitro research studies of essential oils; however, more efforts are required to conduct clinical trials in the future. Most of these antimicrobial studies using essential oils have failed to provide definite information on their chemical nature as well as their mechanisms of action. This poses ambiguity on the reproducibility and accuracy of their discoveries. Therefore, further research should focus on exploring the molecular mechanisms of essential oils and their individual chemical compounds. Biopharmaceutical industries are in need of ecofriendly alternative drug molecules to treat diseases associated with microbial pathogens and body metabolism. Thus, essential oils of MAPs might be a prospective source of alternative antimicrobial agents and may play an important role in the discovery of new drugs for the treatment of a wide range of pathogenic microorganisms in the near future."
