As of now, there are no specific medicines for the treatment of COVID-19. However, supportive care is provided to the patients who have been affected by the virus. There are so many unproven medications suggested by many people all over the world. How the Chinese controlled the virus spread in their country is still a mystery. People suggest that they have been trying on ancient Chinese medicines as a remedy against the virus. However, it is not proven scientifically. Similarly, ancient Indian medical traditions such as Siddha, Ayurveda, Yunani are being recommended by some doctors. 

As of now, the measures taken to control the spread of this virus are:

1.) Social Distancing

2.) Proper Hygiene (washing hands regularly and using hand sanitizer)

3.) Usage of face masks

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. Most people who fall sick with COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without special treatment.

The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales. These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air, and quickly fall on floors or surfaces. You can be infected by breathing in the virus if you are within close proximity of someone who has COVID-19, or by touching a contaminated surface and then your eyes, nose or mouth. As of now, no medicines or proper vaccination has been introduced in the market but every country is working on this aspect as to control the pandemic disease. Few measures that can be taken just to protect ourselves are:-

Self-care

If you feel sick you should rest, drink plenty of fluid, and eat nutritious food. Stay in a separate room from other family members, and use a dedicated bathroom if possible. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces. Everyone should keep a healthy lifestyle at home. Maintain a healthy diet, sleep, stay active, and make social contact with loved ones through the phone or internet. Children need extra love and attention from adults during difficult times. Keep to regular routines and schedules as much as possible.

Medical treatments

If you have mild symptoms and are otherwise healthy, self-isolate and contact your medical provider or a COVID-19 information line for advice. Seek medical care if you have a fever, a cough, and difficulty breathing. Call in advance.
