2.2.7 Chinese medicine
Glycyrrhizin is an active component of liquorice roots in Chinese medicine. Cinatl et al76 had reported that glycyrrhizin could inhibit the replication of SARS‐associated virus in vitro and it had already been suggested as an alternative option for treatment of SARS at that time.
Baicalin, another Chinese herb, is a flavonoid which is isolated from Radix Scutellaria. Baicalin was also found to have the ability to inhibit SARS‐CoV in vitro.50
Ginseng stem‐leaf saponins could highly enhance the specific‐antibody responses for Newcastle disease virus and infectious bronchitis virus.40
Therefore, Chinese Medicine could also be considered as a choice to enhance host immunity against the infection of COVID‐19.
