Corona or Covid 19: A virus that has lessened people to lead a disciplined life. What? A disciplined life! Yes, That's True! Earlier, there was a lack of hygiene and care for personal health. People used to ignore washing hands before accepting meals, no cover on face while getting exposed to pollution.

COVID-19 Treatment, Investigational Drugs, Injections and Other Therapies

But now, people are very much cautious about their lifestyle. They do not harm the environment too. They wash their hands immediately before eating. And make this a regular habit of washing hands properly even after returning from outside and also after touching every single thing. People also have made a good habit of washing their clothes immediately after returning home. And very importantly the government has made it mandatory to wear masks outside and maintain social distance.

Now let us know about coronavirus in biological terms :

We often utter the word 'Covid 19'. The name of the disease is Covid-19. And how is it caused? Well, the researchers have found a strain of virus named corona in the body who are affected by this disease.

If we break the word 'Covid' into three parts, we will understand it better.




Do not think this deadly disease has emerged now only? No friends. This disease was initially called the 2019 Novel Coronavirus. This virus started living with us in 2019.

We all unitedly overcame the first stage of this covid. At that time proper information on medications, vaccines were not available at all. But still, people understood the importance of lockdown. And fought against the virus following the principles dictated by the Government. This time too we will again win the race!

Now let us come to the part of medications

But it has been noticed that these drugs are not able to control the virus from spreading into the body. Neither helps to cure the disease.

2.Antiviral drugs

The study regarding the usage of Dexamethasone is still on as they have not reached any result yet. Researchers are still not fully confident that corticosteroid dexamethasone can treat multi-organ Dysfunctioning and lung damage due to inflammation.

According to the National Institute of Health in the U.S, this drug can be recommended to patients who are very serious and still alive based on mechanical ventilators. Remember this drug can cause serious health issues if applied to a not-so-serious Covid patient.

Dexamethasone may be out of stock. In such cases, corticosteroids like Prednisone, methylprednisolone, or hydrocortisonecan be used. In some cases, the drug tocilizumab is also prescribed by doctors.

6. Some people are diagnosed with mild Covid19 symptoms. But there remains the possibility of it turning into severe Covid cases. In those cases, two Monoclonal Antibody Medicines are prescribed by the doctors.
