Abstract

Introduction: During the current worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (CPVID-19), this disease was first identified in Iran at the end of February. This study was conducted to examine patients with severe COVID-19 disease, who treated with three medications, namely ReciGen, methylprednisolone, and Sovodak.
