What is the treatment pattern followed for Corona virus infection as of now and how effective has it been?
I also read about a patient being completely cured of it in Thailand, how did they treat him?

Dear Dr. Prashanth, Thank you for sharing your query. We have gathered information that might be useful for you.   ----- Treatment for CoronaVirus infection Gilead’s remdesivir drug has demonstrated efficacy in treating the coronavirus infection as per WHO. Also, Favilavir is another anti-viral drug for treating coronavirus. It has shown efficacy in treating the disease with minimal side effects in a clinical trial involving 70 patients in China.   More information on development of coronavirus vaccines and drug: https://www.statnews.com/2020/03/02/coronavirus-drugs-and-vaccines-in-development/    ------ COVID case in Thailand The drug treatment includes a mixture of anti-HIV drugs lopinavir and ritonavir, in combination with flu drug oseltamivir in large doses that have helped in fighting the infection.  Acc. to Thai doctors, patients testing positive for 10 days, have the test results negative within 48 hours after applying this combination of medicine. However, more study is needed to determine whether this can be a standard treatment.  Link: https://www.livemint.com/news/world/has-coronavirus-disease-treatment-cracked-thai-doctors-say-so-11580648507204.html  ...
