So far, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has approved six COVID-19 treatments and four additional drugs are currently under review. The COVID-19 treatments authorized for use in the European Union are: 

Kineret: For treatment of COVID-19 in adults with pneumonia requiring supplemental oxygen and who are at risk of developing severe respiratory failure.
