Abstract

The study was conducted to know the effect of treatment with the hot aqueous extract of the green leaves of
Eucalyptus camldulensis on the initial symptoms associated with Coronavirus disease. Three concentrations
of the hot aqueous extract were used, which are (0,25,50 g.L-1) boiled distilled water, and the results in kind
showed the infected volunteer patients the following: The results showed that there was an effective and
significant increase in the use of the hot aqueous extract by the volunteer patients at a concentration of 50 g
of green eucalyptus leaves per liter of water only. The percentage of those recovering from the symptoms of
the disease was 63% when they inhaled the water vapour of the leaves for a period of 15-30 seconds, once
a day for the age group (25-45) years, while the percentage of recovery for patients from the group (45-65)
years was 55%. The results recorded a recovery percentage of 48.1% for infected patients and volunteers,
and for the age group of 25-45 years, from the initial symptoms associated with the Coronavirus, such as
fever, coughing and shortness of breath, and a recovery percentage of 29.6% and for the older age group
from 45 to 65 years, when they inhale the steam of boiling water of the leaves of the extract for a period of
15-30 seconds and only once a day
