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

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 hospitalised 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.

I am fortunate to be a COVID-19 survivor and this would not be possible without the care I’ve received from the health care professionals. They are indeed at the front lines in the fight against this disease and I’m so grateful to know that they are there to care for us. Brave, courageous and fearless heroes.
