Two years after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, doctors around the world continue to seek treatments to curb the disease that changed the life we knew. In this period, several clinical trials have been carried out that offer scientific evidence to confirm the efficacy or harm of the use of a drug or therapy with various patients who have suffered mild, moderate, and severe symptoms of coronavirus infection.
In this special reporting project, produced in collaboration with the Epistemonikos Foundation, we analyzed the 45 most commonly used covid-19 treatments. To conduct this analysis, we created seven classifications, ranging from “Standard treatment” to “unsupported by science”. We developed these categorization levels to assess the appropriateness of the main covid-19 treatments up to this point in time. From September 2020 until now, we update this information weekly as new scientific evidence becomes available.
