We all know that we can’t keep on focusing on Coronavirus vaccines all the time. We should also care about patients who are helpless. Even though we can’t able to cure them we should try to make them feel better. It’s not that all the people belong to the same social status. Some can afford high-quality medications while some cannot.

Therefore to provide good medications throughout our globe, they allot another 40 million euros to the treatment of COVID-19 patients. This will support the Therapeutic Accelerator, a fund for the rapid development of antiretrovirals or immunotherapies against COVID-19.

In some countries due to a lack of technology and medical devices, people are not able to find the COVID-19 infected person. So to stop this, the UK government allot another 23 million euros to easily manufactured testing devices. This will build rapid testing technology like the new prototype test. This is developed by the Mologic lab in Bedford, which is currently funded by the UK.
