A ground-breaking research project to develop an antiviral drug for Covid-19 has been rolled out in the UAE.

Introduced under Sandooq Al Watan’s applied research and development programme (SWARD), the research project aims to design a dual-inhibitor antiviral drug to treat SARS-CoV2 (the Covid-19 virus) which would be able to block “major enzymes” required for viral infection.
