Not yet. To date, there is no vaccine and no specific antiviral medicines against COVID-19. However, .people, particularly those with serious illness, may need to be hospitalized so that they can receive life-saving treatment for complications.. Most patients recover thanks to such care.
Possible vaccines and some specific drug treatments are currently under investigation. They are being tested through clinical trials. WHO is coordinating efforts to develop vaccines and medicines to prevent and treat COVID-19.
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 meter (3 feet) from others.
When a disease is new, there is no vaccine until one is developed. It can take a number of years for a new vaccine to be developed.
What are your thoughts on the testing of Vaccines?
