PHARMACEUTICAL STRATEGIES TO COMBAT COVID-19
With emergence of year 2020, the world has come up with a disaster in the form of SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19 infection. Its outbreak forces the WHO to consider it as a pandemic disease, due to its worldwide transmission with crucial symptoms. Its impact was first noticed in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and hence term coined COVID-19 to this fatal disorder. The medical system is being put under pressure to control its spread and create more recovery. For primary measure to resolve the spread chain of infection the administration declared lockdown for discontinuity as social distancing is one of the weapons to fight against it. However, this pandemic harms the economy worldwide. But during this challenging scenario, the Pharmaceutical and Biotech industries around the world are having an opportunity to continue research in collaboration with renowned Universities research centers, government agencies for the novel discovery of vaccines based on innovative technologies to manage the treatment and to supply it globally. In this review article, based on the recent publication evidence, we fundamentally compile the challenges and opportunities facing by pharmaceutical industries for finding the vaccine and cure for pandemic COVID-19. This review anthologizes the various technologies based on which preventive and treatment measures would be prepared and providing a reference for future studies.
