Keywords:Biotechnology, Conservation, Immuno-modulatory, Pandemic, Secondary metabolites, Traditional medicine
Plants are an important means of combating numerous harmful influences on humans (microorganisms, viruses, fungi, etc.) and have always been used to treat various diseases. In the context of the Covid pandemic, interest in the use of plants has increased. Great importance has been given to screening plants' potential against Covid (antiviral, anti-inflammatory, immunostimulatory, and antioxidant). According to recent research, many of the plant species used against Covid are of Asian origin. In this review, we aim to discuss the plant species with these medicinal potentials with a focus on Romanian flora. We have listed a total of 50 Phyto-resources from Romanian flora with different potentials: 26 containing the confirmed anti-covid compounds, and 9 species having antiviral, anti-inflammatory, immunostimulant, and antioxidant potentials.
