Abstract:

Madam, our current understanding of the COVID-19 virus and its vulnerabilities has not been translated into the approval of its standard line of treatment. COVID-19, although primarily a respiratory ailment, may culminate in acute respiratory distress syndrome, hyper-inflammatory response, sepsis, and multi-organ failure, which often carry a grave prognosis. Drugs addressing such severities of COVID-19 are often limited by their therapeutic indices, bio-availability, and side effects, necessitating the exploration of new avenues to counter them. The ever-evolving field of nanotechnology presents one such example.
