Abstract: Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a disease that has caused a lot of casualties worldwide. After the pandemic announcement, it infected quite a lot of people and had serious mortality in many countries. The prevalence of the disease, especially in people with weak immune systems and individuals with chronic diseases, has brought to the fore different protection methods and supplements that strengthen the immune system. In this context, it is important to evaluate mushrooms, which are important supplements. Mushrooms are natural products with many biological activities. In this research we have done, the antiviral activity of fungi has been emphasized. In addition, it is recommended that mushrooms should be evaluated as both supplements and natural antiviral drugs against COVID-19.
