The World Health Organization (WHO) recognized Covid-19 as a new infectious disease on 12th January of 2020, which soon became a pandemic. Homeopathy historically presents good results in the treatment of epidemic diseases, since the time when its creator, Samuel Hahnemann, was successful in the treatment, control and prophylaxis of a scarlet fever epidemic in the year of 1799. The objective of this work was the retrospective study of common symptoms of disease in its first phase, looking for a group of characteristic symptoms that would indicate the possible remedies of the "epidemic genius". For this, we used the methodology developed by Hahnemann and James Tyler Kent to understand the common symptoms of the disease. Case reports of 27 patients with laboratory-confirmed Covid-19 sent by homeopathic physicians in different regions of Brazil were used. The most characteristic symptoms found were intense weakness, low fever, dry cough, profuse night sweats, uncharacteristic headache and ageusia/anosmia. Using various techniques for repertorizing these symptoms, a group of five possible drugs for the treatment of the disease was reached Arsenicum album, Bryonia alba, China officinalis, Chininum arsenicosum and Phosphorus.
