Abstract

SARS CoV-2 has caused a pandemic that has challenged both clinicians and researchers in finding an effective treatment option. Currently there only exists a two series vaccine that has a high efficacy in preventing infection. There is no standard effective treatment against SARS CoV-2 however several nutraceuticals such as melatonin, zinc, selenium, vitamin C and vitamin D are being proposed as prevention and treatment options.
