Can Atovaquone be used for Covid-19?
There is currently no evidence to suggest that atovaquone can be used to treat Covid-19. However, the drug has shown promise in other respiratory illnesses, such as pneumonia, and may have potential as a treatment for Covid-19. Clinical trials are ongoing and more research is needed to determine if atovaquone is effective against the virus.
How is Atovaquone used for malaria?
Atovaquone is usually taken for 3 days, in combination with proguanil, to treat an acute attack of malaria. For prevention of malaria, atovaquone is typically taken for 7 days before travel to an area where the disease is common. The drug should then be taken once daily during the stay in the endemic area and for 7 days after return.

Is Atovaquone an antibiotic?
Atovaquone is not an antibiotic. Antibiotics are drugs that kill bacteria or prevent them from growing. Atovaquone does not have this effect on bacteria. Instead, the drug works by interfering with the growth of the malaria parasites in the blood.
What type of drug is Proguanil?
Proguanil should be taken for the entire length of time that you are in an area where malaria is common. For prevention, Proguanil should be taken for 7 days before travel and continued for 7 days after return. For treatment, Proguanil should be taken for 3 days.
