Background: The use of traditional plants in the treatment of the medical problem is fascinating. Many studies on the benefits of traditional herbs on a variety of medical conditions, including respiratory disease, are now underway. Aims and Objectives: This study aim to asses the possible role of Andrographis paniculata, an Asian herb, for management of COVID-19. Materials and Methods: We employed network pharmacology to find a shared biological link between the pharmacological impact of Andrographis paniculata, a traditional Asian herb, and the pathophysiological process of COVID-19 in this short research. Results: The authors were able to find the common pathway through the vimentin node using interrelationship analysis. Conclusion: A. paniculata may be useful in the treatment of COVID-19.
