Since there are people over 60 that have survived COVID-19, what combination of medicines worked to lessen the virus or help with secondary infections?


The reasons that certain patients recover from COVID-19 and others experience serious events or secondary infections is not known. At present, there are no specific treatments approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat people with COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2. Some hospitals are trying antiviral treatments approved for other indications, such as remdesivir, which is already in clinical trials for COVID-19. Some other medications are used to treat the more serious problems associated with the infection (like lung inflammation). One such drug being used to treat severe lung inflammation associated with COVID-19 is called tocilizumab. Secondary infections are treated with medications directed at those infections – like antibiotics for bacterial pneumonias.
