Abstract:
The novel pandemic severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is responsible to cause coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19). It is a global pandemic disease and has reached a new dimension with a higher death ratio. On 2 June 2020, World Health Organization (WHO) data showed more than 6,194,500 confirmed and 376,300 deaths globally due to the COVID-19. There are currently no approved medications or vaccines which have been claimed to be effective in COVID-19 prevention or treatment. Drug repurposing of available drugs and research studies for the search of new therapeutic agents are underway in various countries to try different combinations to treat their patients. It is too early to be sure of them as safe treatments because some reports seem to suggest some alarming side effects. However, a lot of work needs to be done to achieve a successful treatment result and the full safety and efficacy of the trial drugs will take some time to be developed. In this narrative perspective review, we addressed evidence-based literature on various possible antiviral medications, plant-derived antivirals drugs, and other valuable treatment options for COVID-19 management. Le nouveau syndrome respiratoire aigu sévère pandémique coronavirus 2 (SRAS-CoV-2) est responsable de la maladie à coronavirus-2019 (COVID-19). Il s’agit d’une pandémie de nouvelle dimension avec un taux de mortalité plus élevé. Le 2 juin 2020, les données de l’Organisation Mondiale de la Santé (OMS) ont révélé plus de 6 194 500 confirmés et 376 300 décès dans le monde en raison du COVID-19. Il n’y a actuellement aucun médicament ou vaccin approuvé efficace pour prévenir ou traiter le COVID-19. La réorientation des médicaments disponibles et des études pour la recherche de nouveaux agents thérapeutiques sont en cours dans divers pays pour essayer différentes combinaisons susceptible de traiter les patients. Il est trop tôt pour juger de la sécurité d’utilisation traitements car certains rapports semblent suggérer des effets secondaires alarmants. Cependant, cela ne doit pas limiter les efforts pour obtenir un traitement réussi sur et efficace tant que des médicaments d’essai ne seront pas développés. Dans cette revue, nous avons abordé la littérature factuelle sur divers médicaments antiviraux possibles, les médicaments antiviraux d’origine végétale et d’autres options de traitement précieuses pour la gestion du COVID-19.

Abstract:
COVID-19 has evolved into a global pandemic, affecting millions. An effective vaccine is the need of the hour to curb this pandemic, playing a role in increasing herd immunity, preventing severe disease, and reducing the ongoing health crisis. According to the WHO (World Health Organization) draft landscape of COVID-19 vaccines, around 64 vaccine candidates are in clinical assessment. So far, WHO has approved five vaccines; Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, and Sinopharm. Although vaccine technology is proposed to be safe, the adverse effects of the vaccines are not yet fully characterized. Given the importance of the vaccine in fighting this public health crisis, understanding the adverse effects of the approved COVID-19 vaccines is crucial. This review summarizes the current state of knowledge regarding adverse events of the COVID-19 vaccines. These adverse events may include; PE (pulmonary embolism), DVT (Deep venous thrombosis), allergic reactions, CVST (cerebral venous sinus thrombosis), and GBS (Guillain-Barre Syndrome). These findings should be interpreted in light of the proven beneficial effects of the vaccine, and awareness should be spread regarding these adverse effects so that patients can seek early care.
