Lets Pick the Oldest Fighter as a Weapon against Corona Virus: Bacteria
Abstract: The patho physiology, behavior, mechanism of action as well as interaction with human immune system of Corona virus (COVID-19) still remains a puzzle despite an elaborate armamentarium to tackle microorganisms. To date there is no licensed vaccine or specific antiviral medicine to prevent or treat the new COVID-19 infection. This viral infection is powerfully deadly in some but mild enough in others. Except few good health practices, no single recommendation is perfect. For most of the drugs, currently used for the treatment of COVID-19 infection have least desired therapeutic effect as compared to undesirable secondary effect/s. For the last few months, at break neck speed research is being carried out and most of the information on COVID-19 infection has already been published [1, 2]. The alarming issue is that within a short time period we need to reduce the scale of outbreak throughout the globe. Although, the affected countries are following the WHO (World Health Organization) recommended guidelines to combat the disease, climatic, environmental, socio-economic and socio-cultural factors also have tremendous impact on viral outbreak in a variety of ways.
