This is an up-to-date guide to managing Covid-19 illness effectively at home. Covid should be treated early, with a combination of therapies, and treated aggressively to avoid the more serious consequences of the illness.
As Covid-19 is a new condition, this guide is informed by both established and emerging medical research as well as the clinical experience of international doctor-led groups; it will evolve as new evidence emerges.
The safe, established, and patent-free medicines and supplements included in this guide may have differing availability around the world. For that reason, a variety of medicines are included. Expensive, new drugs (such as monoclonal antibody treatments) are not considered here.
Who is this guide for?
Anyone can get Covid, whether they’ve had a Covid shot or not. The good news is that the illness is easily treated, and most people will recover within a few days or weeks.
If you or a family member have had a positive test or have symptoms suggestive of Covid-19, here is a practical guide to help you recover quickly. This guide is designed for people who are generally healthy and not taking other daily medications.
In this guide, we will answer the questions:
- What are the symptoms of Covid-19?
- How does the illness progress?
- What can you do to treat Covid-19 at home?
- When should you go to the hospital with Covid-19?
We aim to empower you with information on practical, accessible medicines and therapies that will help you beat Covid-19 and get you back to living your life.
This guidance will evolve as new information emerges, so please sign up for email updates to keep abreast of the latest developments on treating this new infectious disease.
We envision a world where you are empowered to take control of your health. This resource is a living guideline and will change as new evidence emerges. It does not provide individual medical advice or prescribe treatment. Rather, it is intended as a resource to empower patients and their families with knowledge of healthcare options that may be beneficial to them. Readers should consult the physician(s) of their choice for individual medical evaluation and recommendations for treatment tailored to their individual needs.
