Three Ways To Defeat CoronavirusThe deadly and infectious coronavirus outbreak seems to be uncontrollable and has spread to more than 150 countries around the world. More than 4,00,000 people are affected, and over 1,00,000 have already recovered. While total people dead are now 17,000+. There is no proper treatment found yet. Scientists are trying to figure out ways to find the most efficient and quick solutions to handle and defeat the virus.
First WayOne way to defeat the virus is to make genetically engineered human cells are created in labs and injected in the body. They target the human cells infected with the virus and killing them by producing antibodies. But this process is very lengthy and ineffective because each human has a different genome. None of the cells created for one person would be helpful for other human beings. Scientists would have to work for every single human being to manufacture the cell culture, which is very costly and uneasy.
Second WayTo handle this problem, the second way to defeat this deadly virus is to create a drug or vaccine which can target the virus in the body. This is one of the most reliable methods of treating the issue, but creating a drug or vaccine requires a good time for research, development, and testing. We can not wait this long, considering the continuous increase in the affected people.
Third WayThe quickest and shortest way to defeat coronavirus is to use the existing drugs and vaccines for viruses. Most of the infections are genetically similar. This can help us to use the same or slightly modified antivirus drugs and vaccines for this virus. There is a tremendous chance of defeating this virus and achieving the goal with this reuse strategy. Meanwhile, the scientists are trying to study the virus and develop its own antivirus or a potent vaccine!
That would require some time to create and pass-through tests. For now, the only way to protect yourself is by preventative measures.
- Maintain Social distance.
- Wash your hands frequently.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Practice Respiratory Hygiene.
