Over 90% of people with COVID-19 do not require hospitalization. Among people who are hospitalized the management includes supportive care. In addition, hospitals across Ontario are launching clinical trials to identify treatments for COVID19. If you are hospitalized, ask your physician if there is a clinical trial you can be included in.
As of June 21, 2020 there are two effective treatments for people who are hospitalized with COVID-19. Dexamethasone and Remdesivir.
Preliminary results from a clinical trial have demonstrated that dexamethasone [pronounced dexuhmethazone] appears to be life-savingfor people who are hospitalized with COVID-19 and requiring oxygen [either via a nasal prongs, face mask, or a via ventilator]. This is terrific news.
