Abstract

The emergence of new pathogenic viruses and the constant outbreak of viral diseases have created an upsurge in novel antiviral agents. Marine natural products are the most unexplored reservoir of novel, biologically active, chemically diverse compounds. A systematic literature review was conducted using PRISMA guidelines, accessing four major databases; PubMed, Science Direct,
Scopus, and Google Scholar. Numerous studies supported the robust antiviral activity of marine resources against drug-resistant viruses such as SARS, Ebola, Influenza, and HIV. However, adequate research on marine resources for developing anti-covid therapy is lacking. The aim of the review was to explore the marine resources and their compounds that could lead to developing an effective antiviral drug. We also highlighted the current status of novel compounds against different species of corona family and discussed the future prospects of marine resources against COVID-19 management.
