In order to cope with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, there is an urgent need for effective
prevention and control measures. This study aims to explore the positive action of black seeds (BS) against
COVID-19 in patients involved in the trail. It is a descriptive, comparative, and open-label study. In our
study, (419) participants were divided into two groups.The studied participants included patients which
received standard care treatment as a control group (CON) , while the (BS) group were patients received
black seeds at a 40 mg/kg dose orally, once daily for 14 days plus standard protocol of treatment. The
evidence of BS efficacy was obvious in the severity and outcome of infection with covid-19. A significantly
higher severity of infection among control group 44 (17.0%) than the black seed group were noticed; the
control group also showed 14 deaths (5.4%), while there were no deaths in black seeds group (0.0%). Thus,
we can conclude that black seed is very effective in reducing the severity of covid-19 and preventing death
in infected patients.
