Researchers in Israel claim to have developed a drug that can help modify the immune system and inhibit cytokine. Cytokine is a condition in which the body’s immune response goes into overdrive and begins to attack its tissues and organs. In corona virus patients, it is the cytokine that causes the death of most patients due to infection.
The drug, similar to asthma, has been given in different doses to 35 Kovid-19 patients at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center – Ichilov Hospital. Researchers said their oxygen saturation and respiratory rate had improved after giving the drug for five days. In an online press briefing on Wednesday, the researchers would publish the data even after the last patient was given the drug.
Significantly, Corona created panic all over the world. In such a situation, every medicine is holding hope. Talking about India, till January 29, India ranks fifth in terms of giving vaccine supplements to people in the country.

The ministry said, two states Kerala and Maharashtra account for 69.41 per cent of the total under-treatment cases in the country.
