SARS-CoV2 is a novel coronavirus identified as the cause of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) that began in Wuhan, China in late 2019 and spread worldwide.
Treatment of COVID-19 is supportive. No vaccine, antiviral drug, or other specific treatment is available. Over 175 treatment and vaccine clinical trials are currently registered, but data on effective therapy remains sparse. Current therapeutic strategies in practice for severe disease include antiviral agents (notably remdesivir, in clinical trial), chloroquine derivatives, and immunomodulatory agents, namely Il-6 inhibitors such as tocilizumab.
The Upcoming Special Issue will focus on the recent research going on for the Drug Development and possible Vaccines that could control the widespread infection of Novel Corona Virus.
