The ACTIV-2 Study is testing different medicines to see if they are safe and can help adults with COVID-19. Finding treatments for COVID-19 is important because the virus is spreading quickly all over the world and can cause serious sickness and even death.
Researchers want to see if the medicines are:
Can help people get better faster
Can get rid of the virus
Can keep people from getting sicker
Can prevent people from having to go to the hospital
