This page details potential COVID-19 therapeutics. Therapeutic is another word for a treatment. Vaccines are given before someone gets COVID-19 and protects the person from infection, whereas therapeutics are given when someone gets COVID-19.

Substances listed here are not necessarily effective. Medications are detailed because they are on trial for use in COVID-19 or have been described as a potential treatment in an academic paper.
