Abstract: SARS-CoV-2 belongs to the Coronaviridae family and of the order Nidovirales, which has positive non-segmented RNA, of the enveloped type that causes a severe acute respiratory syndrome in humans, which has already infected more than 9 million people worldwide, leading to 496,075 deaths by June 27, 2020, making the search for alternative treatment for this pathogen urgent. Thus, this study aimed to conduct a bibliographic survey of research that presents treatment alternatives for the new coronavirus. Thus, a qualitative and descriptive cross-sectional study was carried out, and a comparative analysis was carried out with the prospective results achieved as presented in a study carried out by Reis and collaborators. Publications from the last 7 months were considered, that is, from December 2019 to June 2020, the period in which studies of SARS-CoV-2 started. In this way, a total of 4,898 studies related to the treatment alternative for SARS-CoV-2 were found, in which the drugs remdesivir, atazanavir, favipiravir, EIDD-2801 and hydroxychloroquine associated with azithromycin stand out, where they presented attractive preliminary results and are recommended for clinical studies in humans as an alternative way of coping with the new coronavirus.
