The coronavirus outbreak caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus2 (SARS-CoV-2) happened in Wuhan, Hubei, China in December 2019. It was transmitted from humans to humans so quickly that it has become the pandemic responsible for the current  global crisis. In May 2020, as was reported by the WHO, there have been approximately 5 million confirmed cases of COVID-10 and more than 30 thousand deaths worldwide.

Since there is also no effective pharmacologic treatment against COVID-19, determining the drug target requires an understanding of the viral lifecycle. 

 While many clinical trials aimed at discovering a potential effective COVID-19 drug are ongoing, using herbal medicines with well-known antiviral activity might be a complementary SARS-CoV-2 preventive therapy.

The development of microbial resistance to antibiotics is a global concern. Natural products are a great scientific deal for finding alternative methods for food preservation. Essential oils from the plants show more antibacterial activity from oxygenated terpenoidsphenols, alcoholic compounds, and other chemical constitutes that contribute to the antimicrobial effects.
