The entire human world is currently terrorised by the ever growing Coronavirus. The virus has infected lakhs of people, and has claimed the lives of many others.

Almost every country around the world is busy trying to come up with a vaccine that could cure this global pandemic.

India too is trying its best to come up with a vaccine as soon as possible. In the mean time, Indian researchers have found that Hydroxychloroquine drug is effective in reducing the chances of an individual being infected by Coronavirus.

Hydroxychloroquine is now said to be used a preventive measure by doctors in India, in order to reduce the impact of the virus, even in case of infection.

USA based company Moderna has seen impressive results with the vaccine it has been developing, and the vaccine has now entered its next phase of testing.
