An outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was first seen in Wuhan, China in December 2019. At the beginning of the pandemic, there was no drug which could be validated to be used to fight this deadly virus, but two years down the line, the armenaterium of drugs comprises of hydroxychloroquine, antivirals alone or in combination, antibiotics like azithromycin and doxycycline and low dose corticosteroids, either oral or intravenous. On the other hand, monoclonal antibodies have also played a significant role and have proved to be very effective in some cases. Here the authors have attempted to summate the role of new monoclonal antibodies and their effectiveness keeping in mind the discovery of the new variants of COVID-19.
