It was revealed that the federal government was impressed with the state government and consequently decided to grant the approval for clinical trials of the drugs for treatment of the virus.

This is seen as a major step forward towards the usage of the drugs but it is not certain yet how the trials would pan out as French researchers had announced last week that a combination of both drugs was effective 100 per cent cure in treating Covid-19 patients.
