    Coronavirus disease MESHD ( COVID-19 MESHD) is caused by SARS-CoV-2 and represents the causative agent of a potentially lethal disease. COVID-19 MESHD has been described as a significant global public health pandemic by the World Health Organization due to its high mortality rate, rapid spread, and the lack of drugs and vaccines for it. Active antiviral drugs are desperately needed to combat the potential return of severe acute respiratory syndrome MESHD (SARS).In this study, we selected 39 natural compounds present in plants, algae, and sponges with antiviral activity. Molecular docking was used to screen the compounds’ activity on SARS- CoV-2 RNA-dependent-RNA polymerase PROTEIN, receptor-binding domain (RBD), and the human ACE2 receptor. Compounds with binding energy ≤ -6.5 kcal/mol enter pre-clinical testing using in silco ADME/ Tox HGNC (absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and toxicity MESHD).We found eight potential SARS-CoV-2 inhibitors: (glycyrrhizin, rutin, baicalin, 1, 6-di-O- galloyl-beta-D-glucose, pyropheophorbide A, pheophorbide A, beta-Sitosterol, and vitexin). These outcomes indicate that these compounds could be potential candidates to be utilized in lead optimization for the design and production of the anti-SARS-CoV-2 drug.
