Background: The aim of this work is to present two case reports of successful prevention and treatment of the COVID-19 and to propose a model for stopping the COVID-19 pandemic with probiotics. Material and Methods: We present two case reports during the COVID-19 epidemic in Serbia in which probiotics were used for the prevention and treatment of the COVID-19. Based on the biological plausibility we propose a model for stopping the COVID-19 pandemic with probiotics. Results: In Case 1, a female (75), chain smoker, asthmatic, gets a fever (38.5ºC), and a pronounced weakness. Treated at home with paracetamol. The next morning fever (39.0ºC), more pronounced weakness. We advise to stop with paracetamol and to take a probiotic, 3x1 tablet (4x10exp9 CFU Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium spec.) during a meal. The same night temperature falls and remains at 36.9ºC, weakness disappears. Feeling healthy and strong ever since. Negative on the ELISA test for the COVID-19. In Case 2, a male, (63), hypertensive, has got infected from a colleague at work who was treated for the COVID-19 in a hospital. Did not take probiotics as prevention. Treated at home with a symptomatic therapy for two weeks, with the symptoms of fever, dry cough, and pronounced weakness. Positive on the ELISA test for the COVID-19. His wife (57), who had been taking one probiotic daily regularly, has felt healthy ever since, although they have slept together. We propose a model for stopping the COVID-19 pandemic. Advice the whole population to take one capsule of probiotics Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, during a meal. Those with COVID-19 one capsule three times daily. Those who are on mechanical ventilation- two capsules three times daily. Conclusion: Based on case reports and the biological plausibility we propose a model for stopping the COVID-19 pandemic with probiotics.
