Treatment of Coronavirus
Like most viral infection, there is currently no antiviral treatment, specific cure, or vaccine for coronavirus infection.
Your immune system is your best defence, hence most healthy individuals can recover from the infection on their own.
However, there are some treatments and ways to provide symptomatic reliefs:
- Medication such as paracetamol or ibuprofen for pain and fever
- Cough syrups for cough
- Lozenges for sore throat
- Anti-histamines or nasal decongestant drugs for runny or blocked nose
- Ample rest
- Drinking plenty of water to ensure good hydration
