    Coronavirus (Covid-19) treatment – drug candidates

    Developing or finding the right, existing candidate for the treatment of coronavirus became one of the priorities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Effective treatment is not only needed for the current outbreak of the virus but also in case of any future outbreaks if seasonality is observed in the rates of infections, like with influenza (‘flu’) virus. Poorer countries with weak healthcare infrastructure (number of doctors and respirators, for example) will solely rely on cheap drug treatment donated from other countries. The purpose of this post is to list drugs which are or were considered as the treatment of coronavirus (Covid-19) infection.
