Special drugs for COVID-19 do not yet exist, now only symptomatic treatment is carried out for this disease. The World Health Organization noted that a number of drugs can help to improve well-being and alleviate the symptoms of COVID-19, but so far there is no evidence that any drug can prevent or treat this disease.
