This list details the type of treatment or vaccine being studied or developed, as well as their FDA-approved status (for other conditions - none have been approved specifically for treating COVID-19 to date). The United Kingdom has 6,726 infections and 336 deaths.

According to the local press, unlike other clinical trials, the volunteers did not need to be infected with the new coronavirus that causes Covid-19, and the researchers will seek to determine if the substance produces antibodies and makes them immune to the respiratory condition.
The six projects receiving funding today are supporting and encouraging the UK's world-class researchers and experts to speed up coronavirus research including developing new vaccines and treatments.
A clinical trial to test if existing or new drugs can help patients hospitalised with coronavirus will received £2.1 million funding. They are working with Chinese scientists to develop antibody therapy to kill the virus. The doctors will see if the drugs are safe and effective.
"Amid a global health emergency, the U.K.is using all its extensive research expertise to develop new vaccines to target this worldwide threat quickly".
"UK Research and Innovation, in partnership with NIHR and DHSC, has moved quickly to fund this new, additional research to rapidly test re-purposed therapies in patients, understand the disease and its variation in susceptibility, and boost the development of new vaccines and therapies". The first two therapies to be tested will be HIV drugs: lopinavir-ritonavir and low-dose corticosteroids.
Another project includes one that will review the disease and how it affects different patients.
