For a few months this pandemic has set pressure on laborites to diagnose this novel virus properly and on the pharmacists, researchers, doctors, scientists, and pharmaceutical companies to develop proper medicine and vaccination against this virus. Proper diagnosis and treatment are essential to treat patients suffering from COVID-19. Despite extraordinary advancements in the medical field, presently, there is no effective treatment for this global pandemic. However, fast and rapid research on the epidemiology of SARS-COv-2 is helping in unveiling the potential therapeutic against COVID-19.clinical trials and screening for drug development are going on some drugs.
