"First, the repurposing of existing drugs. At least four drugs are undergoing synthesis and examination in this category. Secondly, the development of new candidate drugs and molecules are being driven by linking high performance computational approached with laboratory verification. Thirdly, plant extracts and products are being examined for general anti-viral properties."

Besides, many academic research start-ups and institutions are looking at fresh tests. They all focus on approaching the Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and testing, diagnosis, and antibody disclosure. Laboratories throughout India have worked together to create the capacity to implement these tests.

The statement further added:

"The problem of important reagents for testing has been addressed by consortia of Indian start-ups and industry, meeting current requirements. The current thrust also holds promise for the development of a robust long-term industry in this area."
