Over 20 vaccines, multiple treatments currently in development for coronavirus

Possible treatments for coronavirus:

Remdesivir by the firm Gilead was developed to fight other viruses including Ebola (where it was shown to be ineffective) and it hasn’t yet been approved for treating anything. Still, it has shown early promise in treating some coronavirus patients in China, according to doctors, and manufacturer Gilead is moving ahead with final stage clinical trials in Asia. It has also been used to treat at least one US patient so far.

NIH’s Anthony Fauci, one of the top government scientists overseeing the coronavirus response, has said it could be available in the next “several months.”

WHO officials says progress being made, but any immunizing solution will take time: ‘There is only one thing more dangerous than a bad virus, and that’s a bad vaccine’
