A total of 2,200 drugs were studied in detail, of which, 42 medicines have shown medicinal values in nullifying the coronavirus. Out of the 42 samples, only three medicines gave the researches the result which the scientists at Novalead were expecting.

Now, those three medicines have finally been chosen to perform clinical trials.

To carry out the cynical trials, Novalead Pharma Pvt Ltd approached the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI). It was given a go-ahead after the DCGI studied all the computer tests.

Supreet Deshpande has confirmed that the human clinical trials will commence within 20 days and hopefully, India will have the answer to fight coronavirus in the next few months.
