An outbreak of Coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19), firstly reported in Wuhan, China in December 2019, and eventually turned into pandemic, is continuing to put a lot of burden on the health sectors worldwide. Thus, finding a fast and effective therapy is crucial to discontinue the current human-to-human transmission and to treat serious cases. Several active preclinical and clinical studies are going on towards these goals, while existing drugs are being used alone and in combination to treat symptoms in COVID-19 patients. Here, bearing in mind the timeline and various stages of drug development, and considering the extremely-low probability that any new biological target or molecule identified as potentially relevant to the SARS-CoV-2 will result in an approved new medicine, a brief look at those basic studies and clinical trials of the investigational drugs and projected success of COVID-19 therapeutics based on the unprecedented rapidity of the processes being witnessed were emphasized. Despite the current explosion in such studies, from an expert opinion, it is believed that concerted and efficient development plans may ultimately yield a fast and effective medicine for the disease or we may live with the disease (COVID-19).
