Covid 19, the severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2, is the highly transmissible “Complex killer”. A recent trend in the community is the consumption of herbal medicines containing certain active compounds, which have antimicrobial or antiviral, antiinflammatory, and immunomodulatory activities. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of three herbs (Rhus Coriaria, thyme and Anise = Covets) on COVID-19 patients. Two groups were included, the first received the protocoled treatment and the CovETS (Covets (study) group= G1) while the second (control group= G2) received the protocoled treatment only. CovETS showed highly significant improvement with highly significant reduction of patient’s mortality.
