Everyone is well aware of the coronavirus outbreak which has spread over 100 countries across the world. By far, the virus has affected over 2 lakh people globally and the global death toll has risen to at least 8,000.
So far, there have been more than 140 confirmed cases of the virus in India as per the health ministry.
As the world continues to fight the growing number of coronavirus-positive cases, scientists are also trying their best to find a complete cure to combat the fast-spreading disease.
In an attempt to find a cure for the COVID-19, Jaipur doctors have discovered a cure for Coronavirus that can treat the disease. As per news agency IndiaTV, Doctors have claimed that they have discovered a combination of antiviral drugs that effectively treats the dangerous Coronavirus. They said that a combination of two anti-HIV drugs has successfully treated three out of four infected patients.
Additional Chief Secretary (Medical and Health) Rohit Kumar Singh said the patients’ condition improved after they were administered the anti-HIV drugs.
The drug cocktail has been proven to work effectively for patients who were suffering from coronavirus. The anti-HIV drug combination is believed to be very effective to cure the dangerous virus as the coronavirus has no medicine.
Three of the four patients have now recovered from the infection.”Their symptoms were flu-like so they were initially given anti-malaria and anti-swine flu drugs,” Kumar said.
Now the infections caused by the virus can be treated. It has been learnt that 3 people have lost their lives due to coronavirus in India.
The coronavirus disease has sabotaged the international calendar of sporting events across the world. The Board of Control for Cricket in India has postponed the Indian Premier League until mid-April while also calling off the ODI series between India and South Africa. Further details are awaited.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked the citizens not to panic and asserted that the Indian government is taking necessary steps to prevent the fast-spreading disease.
