Is there a treatment, vaccine, or cure for COVID-19?

There is no cure or specific antiviral treatment for COVID-19. The best treatment for COVID-19 (and other infections that don’t have a cure) is to relieve the symptoms. For mild symptoms, this usually involves rest, fluids, and medications to help with fever and cough as needed. People with severe symptoms (lots of trouble breathing, very high fever, inability to stay hydrated by drinking fluids by mouth) need hospitalization and potentially intensive care. Currently, there is no vaccine available to prevent COVID-19, and the best way to prevent exposure and illness is by using the techniques above (“How does novel coronavirus spread? How can I minimize the risk of getting an infection or spreading infection to other people?”).
