Treatment

Is there a vaccine, drug or treatment for COVID-19?

While some western, traditional or home remedies may provide comfort and alleviate symptoms of mild COVID-19, there are no medicines that have been shown to prevent or cure the disease. WHO does not recommend self-medication with any medicines, including antibiotics, as a prevention or cure for COVID-19.

However, there are several ongoing clinical trials of both western and traditional medicines. ‎WHO is coordinating efforts to develop vaccines and medicines to prevent and treat COVID-‎‎19 and will continue to provide updated information as soon research results become ‎available.‎

The most effective ways to protect yourself and others against COVID-19 are to:‎

  • Clean your hands frequently and thoroughly
  • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose
  • Cover your cough with the bend of elbow or tissue. If a tissue is used, discard it immediately ‎and wash your hands.‎
  • Maintain a distance of at least 1 metre from others. ‎
