COVID-19

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered SARS-CoV2 virus.
Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands, wearing masks or using an alcohol based rub frequently and not touching your face.
For treatment refer to ICMR and WHO guidelines as appropriate.

 

CSIR partnered clinical trials on COVID-19:
There are no specific drugs available against the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 that has caused the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, developing new drugs against this coronavirus and testing for their efficacy and safety will take several years. Hence, efforts are on globally to fast track and test the drugs approved or tested for other viral diseases such as HIV or Ebola (called as repurposing). India is also participating some of these global trials, and is also carrying out its own clinical trials. CSIR is exploring all possible options ranging from repurposed drugs to new drugs to AYUSH products and biological therapeutics including vaccines. Collectively, CSIR has partnered in many such trials including AQCH - the first ever phytopharmaceutical drug under trial.
