The ayurvedic formulation- AYUSH-64, was developed by the Central Council for Research in Ayurvedic Sciences (CCRAS), for the management of malaria. Later, this medicine was repurposed to fight against the coronavirus as the ingredients showed notable anti-viral, immune-modulator and antipyretic properties. Tests have shown that it can also treat influenza-like illnesses.

AYUSH-64 has been identified as a potential adjunct to standard care in the management of asymptomatic, mild and moderate cases of infection, based on scientific evidence from six clinical studies conducted across India. In an in-silico study conducted on AYUSH-64, it was observed that nearly 35 out of 36 of its phyto-constituents have a high binding affinity against the coronavirus.
