Treating Covid-19

There are currently no medicines to prevent or cure Covid-19. However, some western, traditional or home remedies may provide comfort and alleviate symptoms of mild COVID-19.

Note that antibiotics should not be used as a treatment option since the disease is caused by a virus.

However, there are several ongoing clinical trials of both western and traditional medicines and efforts are being made to develop vaccines to prevent and treat COVID-19.
