“There is a lot of hope because we have received quite a number of them that are potentially to be screened for Covid-19 as we begin to do that we will be able to tell.”

Some of these drugs turn out to be very promising sometimes even a complete solution,” he said.

Prof. Annan however, said the testing it will take a few weeks for the results to be released.
