A plausible approach has been made to expose pranayama as one of the important sub means or tool of holistic approach of Yoga to combat novel corona virus (COVID-19). Since, COVID-19 is a new virus, so it is quite natural that the therapeutic part of this infection has not been discussed systematically. Now it is running seriously for deciding the possibility of its curative and preventive measures. It is not essential to leave one’s house or go into oblivion to practice yoga. Yoga has a special role to play in this crucial situation of today. Its practice can remove mental and physical afflictions. Yoga can benefit all people under all circumstances of life. Pranayama helps to pure the respiratory problems and infections as well as enhance and maintain our immune system. It removes our stress, distress, anxiety due to infection or fear of infection.
