COVID-19 treatment may be faster as scientists of Indian origin have identified 69 drugs that may be effective against coronavirus. They have also identified some of the experimental compounds that can treat diseases such as diabetes and hypertension and repurpose them to operate COVID-19 by inventing a vaccine. The international team, including scientists of Indian origin, have done an investigation of 26 of the 29 coronavirus genes, which direct production of the viral proteins.
