Upon observation of the steep rise in Covid cases patients all over the world, it seems to be clear that along with conventional methods for prevention and cure of this unpredictable disease, something more requires employment. This paper proposes that the concept of 'Yamdanshtra' (described in Sharangdhar Samhita) “Shaaranghar Samhita Ch-3/29” (2021) / ”Ritusandhi”(described in Charak Samhita) “Charak Samhita Tasyaashiteadhyaya/48 Chakrapaani” (2021) is a viable solution. A speciϐic 'diet modiϐication pattern'(Padanshik Tyag vidhi) is recommended for better immunity. Detailed graphical studies have been shown about relationship of the number of cases of Covid and the periods of Yamdanshtra or Ritusandhi(cusp between two seasons) in Bharat and three more countries viz. USA,UK and Russia. It was concluded in the study that a positive relation between Covid cases and transition periods can be established. In countries other than Bharat, the rise in Covid cases was present but not signiϐicant. It is hypothesized that that may be because the seasons do not show much difference in climatic conditions or in other parameters. For Bharat, the Padanshik Tyag “Charak Samhita Navegaandhaaraniya/36-37” (2021) method of diet modiϐication during transition periods may work,while other countries may prefer taking a lighter diet during them.
