More than 350,000 people have died with Covid-19, but there are still no drugs established to help doctors treat the disease. So how far are we from these life-saving medicines? What work is being done to discover medicines? More than 150 different drugs are being researched around the world. Most are existing medications that are being trailed against the infection. The World Health Organization (WHO) has propelled the Solidarity preliminary planned for surveying the most encouraging medicines The UK says its Recovery preliminary is the world’s greatest, with in excess of 5,000 patients previously partaking And multiple research centers around the world are trying to use survivors’ blood as a treatment. What kinds of medications may work? There are three expansive methodologies being examined:

- Drugs which will calm the system – patients become seriously ill when their system overreacts and starts causing fatal accident to the body.
- Antibodies, either from survivors’ blood or made during a lab, which will attack the virus.
