The authors present a case of a man with pneumonia caused by COVID-19. There is currently no FDA-approved medical treatment or vaccine for COVID-19, so a variety of drugs and medicinal therapies have been repurposed for use in hospital settings and clinical studies while the medical community waits for a medication to be approved and standardized. Pneumonia is a common outcome of infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), so cases of it are rapidly spreading around the world as the novel coronavirus continues to spread.
