At the beginning of 2020, the Covid-19 epidemic broke out and soon became a global public health problem. Therefore, many countries are speeding up the development of antiviral drugs and COVID-19 vaccines to achieve effective prevention, control, and treatment of Covid-19. This paper reviews the pathogenic mechanism and detection and diagnosis of COVID-19 and the status and research progress of antiviral drugs, vaccines, and some other treatments against it based on previous articles published in this field. Although Covid-19’s pathogenic mechanism has been generally figured out and the detection methods are advanced, old pneumonia treatment methods are adopted Covid-19 due to the lack of high-efficiency antiviral drugs. Meanwhile, as more and more safe and effective vaccines enter the clinical phase, the treatment of the Covid-19 epidemic may rely more on the prevention-oriented strategy.
