“SARS-Cov-2” and “COVID-19”. For traditional medicine, we searched reliable traditional medicine like
the “Canon of Medicine” by “Avicenna”, the Exir-e Aazam and Zakhira-I Kharazm Shahi. Patients were
evaluated according to their symptoms and categorized based on traditional medicine. Physiopathology
and management of the disease, including prevention and treatment were studied. Results: The principle
underlying mechanism seems to be warm and dry dystemperament that affects different organs and causes
various adverse effects which are higher than warm and dry dystemperament, but less than the presence of
virus. Our traditional Iranian medicine findings are validated by the modern medicine. Conclusion: Based
on symptoms, the equivalent of this disease was examined from the viewpoint of traditional medicine.
