The number of COVID-19 infection across the globe and in Nigeria in particular is on the rapid rise without commensurate treatment and cure. The search for cure and eradication of the pandemic is on the increase. Vitamin C has been postulated by this paper as one of the treatment measures that can reduce infection rate and also contribute to the cure of COVID-19. The paper calls for healthcare givers across the globe to also cue in towards better management of COVID-19 through the use of intravenous infusion at doses 400 - 1000 mg for adults, 200 - 400 mg for children and 1200 - 2000 mg for adults and 500 - 1000 mg for children as prophylaxis and curative treatments respectively.
