There are many strategies that are surfacing in the scientific world on what can interrupt the viral stages of a disease. The first strategy is to stay healthy in your immune system, also called the Wei Qi Level in the Chinese Model.
If you think you have been exposed, it is a good idea to take a “common” antiviral formula, like Yin Qiao San (lonicera and forsythia combination) . Airborne is based on this Chinese formula, however, any or all products that contain sugar will diminish the Immune System’s strength. I suggest staying away from any sources of added sugar.
There is a discussion in the Scientific community regarding an IL-6 cascade, one concept in the cytokine storm idea that can be interrupted by Quercitin, found in Stellar C, and by Andrographis, or also know by the name of Chuan Xin Lian, in the Chinese Herbal Pharmacy. True Chi’s Wind Heat combines Yin Qiao san and Andrographis/Chuan Xin Lian together for maximin anti-viral protection.

There is a formula that is being used in China for helping patients to recover from the COVID19, called Qing Fei Pai Du tang, but one of the herbs is not possible to source any longer, so we keep finding ways to heal without this principal herb.
