The antiviral activity of the propolis phenolic fraction of (PPF) against influenza virus, adenovirus and coronavirus and vesicular stomatitis virus was studied. As a result of the performed study the maximum tolerated concentration (MTC) of cell culture of human or animal origin was determined, which was 1.0% for the lot of PPF № 1 and 0.5% for the lot of PPF № 2. An aqueous solution of PPF (lot № 1) decreased coronavirus hemagglutinin titer by 4 - 8 times, thus indicating the prospects of using the drug against coronavirus infections.
