There is no prophylaxis for people at high risk of developing COVID-19. It is one of the first clinical studies aiming to investigate the effect of Anatolian Propolis against COVID-19. This study will test whether Anatolian propolis can be used to prevent the development of COVID-19 in people at risk of COVID-19. If Anatolian Propolis has been shown to reduce the risk of developing COVID-19 in people at high risk of infection, this could help reduce the morbidity and mortality of the COVID-19 outbreak.
This study will be done in 2 centers. These centers are planned as Atatürk University Medical Faculty Emergency Medicine Clinic and Rize Recep Tayyip Erdoğan University Emergency Medicine Clinic. This work will be done entirely on a voluntary basis. The research subject will be explained to the healthcare professionals (doctor, nurse, medical secretary) working in both emergency medicine clinics and voluntary participation forms will be signed by the healthcare professionals who agree to participate in the study. Health workers who agree to participate in the study will be accepted as the study group, and healthcare professionals who do not agree to participate in the study will be accepted as the control group. The study group will be asked to take 20 drops of Propolis drop form twice a day in the morning / evening and the control group will not receive any treatment and both groups will be followed. In this process, patients diagnosed with COVID-19 will be determined.The study will cover a period of 1 month and at the end of 1 month, patients diagnosed with COVID-19 in the study and control groups will be compared. Thus, the protective properties of Anatolian propolis will be determined.
