The objective of the study is to investigate the inhibitory activity of selected flavonoids from the plant Carica Papaya Linn. using molecular docking against SARS-CoV-2 or Covid-19. In silico bioinformatics tools was used to investigate the capabilities of flavonoids as an acclamatory inhibitor of Covid-19. The 3D structure of the receptor was retrieved from PDB and of the ligands from PubChem databases. Docking analysis of the selected compounds was performed employing Autodock and PyRx.
