Medications are available that can reduce chances of severe illness and death from COVID-19 infection. Oral antivirals are available that can reduce chances of severe illness and death from COVID-19 infection. The Food & Drug Administration issued emergency use authorizations for certain antiviral medications and monoclonal antibodies to treat mild to moderate COVID-19 in people who are more likely to get sick. The National Institutes of Health also provides COVID-19 treatment guidelines for healthcare providers for treating COVID-19 at home or in an outpatient setting. During this COCA Call, subject matter experts will present an overview of COVID-19 therapeutic options, including indications, efficacy, and distribution.
