The first batch of 10,000 doses of 2DG medicine for treating COVID-19 patients would be launched today, i.e. May 17, the defence ministry said on Sunday.
The 2-DG drug developed by DRDO is a big breakthrough and could be a game-changer in the battle against the pandemic as it helps in faster recovery of the hospitalised patients and reduces oxygen dependence.
