During 2003 and 2012, the Severe Acute Respiratory Coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) had human epidemics. Because of similar characteristics among SARS-CoV-2 and other coronaviruses, they can be used by physicians to treat similar severe patients. During the past decade, traditional medicine has been widely used for the epidemic outbreaks such as SARS, H1N1 influenza, and MERS.   In this review, the researchers summarized the recent findings and evidence of herbal formula of TCM in the treatment of COVID-19.
