How is COVID-19 treated?

Treatment

No treatment has been developed yet; the body heals naturally. Patients with COVID-19 will be offered medication to reduce the symptoms, such as Tylenol and Advil, or support treatment such as oxygen if their lungs are too sick.

Risk

In China, elderly persons and those with chronic diseases were more at risk of being very sick and dying; children did not get very sick. Be mindful and protect elderly persons around you. Wash hands often and don’t visit if you are sick.
