COVID-19 is a highly contagious disease caused by RNA virus which is known to cause sensorineural deafness. The evidences are also prompting the risk of deafness in the near future. Respiratory virus, Mumps, measles, and Herpez are known for delayed presentation of deafness with poor prognosis. In the past, nitric oxide has shown evidence-based results in the treatment of coronavirus and respiratory pathologies. Humming enhances (Bhramari Pranayama) the production of nitric oxide. Suitable diet and lifestyle changes along with Tratak (focused concentration) and Bhramari Pranayama along with regular follow-up may be a must step to prevent and rehabilitate the patients with sensorineural deafness.
