It is well-known garlic has antibacterial and antiviral properties which may help fight off a common cold. Garlic contains compounds that help the immune system fight germs. For thousands of years, garlic has been used as a medication for common colds, influenza, and other kinds of infections.
A study from March found:
"Garlic essential oil is a valuable natural antivirus source, which contributes to preventing the invasion of coronavirus into the human body."
"This study proposes a potential approach to the use of natural essential oils, in general, and garlic essential oil, in particular, to tackle the current pandemic SARS-CoV-2 (Covid 19). The compounds in the garlic essential oil inhibit the ACE2 protein, leading the virus to lose the host receptor and attacking the PDB6LU7 protein—the main protease of SARS-CoV-2—at the same time. This prevents protein maturation of the virus and the spread of infection. Docking [see below] simulation suggests the active binding site of most active compounds in garlic essential oil with the ACE2 protein and the PDB6LU7 protein. From the analysis of the docking data, it is revealed that 17 ... out of 18 compounds of the garlic essential oil are capable of inhibiting ACE2 and resisting SARS-CoV-2 and that the total content of these 17 compounds accounts for 99.4% composition of the garlic essential oil."
