Background and objectives: Favipiravir (FAV) is considered to have potential efficacy against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. We aimed to explore the efficacy of favipiravir in the treatment of mild and moderate cases of COVID-19 pneumonia. Methods: 250 patients of mild and moderate COVID-19 patients confirmed by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) were included from 22 nd of June 2020 till 25 th of October 2021, aged 18 to 90 years, 125 patients received FAV 3200 mg no day 1 followed by 600 mg twice daily (from day 2 -day 10). In another group, 125 patients did not receive favipiravir (SOC, standard of care group). They received paracetamol, vitamins D, and C plus Zinc, and azithromycin within the first 10 days of symptoms' onset. In both groups, the patients were monitored for clinical recovery on the 5 th ,10 th, 15 th days and after one month of receiving the therapeutic trials. Patients were enrolled from Rizgari Teaching Hospital, and from an outpatient respiratory private clinic. Both arms were comparable as regards demographic characteristics, severity, and comorbidities. It was a non-randomized -controlled trial. Results: On day five, the rate of clinical improvement in the FAV group (74.4%) was significantly (p < 0.001) higher than the rate in the SOC group (12.8%). On day 10, the mentioned rate was 88.8% in the FAV group compared with 47.2% in the SOC group (p < 0.001). The median time of clinical recovery was 6.5 days in the FAV group vs.
