The use of “kabasura kudineer” (liquid soup made from Indian medicinal plants) for combating COVID-19 has been common in the states of Tamilnadu and Puducherry, India during the pandemic. Therefore, it is of interest to document the molecular docking analysis of IL-6 inhibitors with potential antiviral compounds from “kabasura kudineer” extract. We show the optimal binding features of gallic acid and luteolin with the Interleukin-6 protein for further consideration.
