The food and drug R&D webzine_Volume 8 issued by the Korea Food and Drug Administration was a special issue of COVID-19.

It consisted of an overview of COVID-19, vaccine development status, treatment development status, quarantine status and support programs, and expert contributions. Repure Life Science will also be named and introduced.

Coronavirus-19. After the first patient outbreak in Korea (2020.1.20), it has increased rapidly, mainly in Daegu and Gyeongbuk, but recently, it has increased rapidly in the Seoul metropolitan area.

There was also a development using a malaria treatment and AIDS treatment as a treatment for COVID-19, but it was discontinued, and only remdesivir was urgently approved, and the drug was started mainly for severely ill patients in Korea, but the effect on it is still to be observed because it is literally urgent approval.

The government is supporting the activation of new drug re-creation research and approval from the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety to reconsider existing treatments or candidates for new drugs for the development of COVID-19 treatment. In the case of vaccine development, it is being promoted mainly by domestic bio-ventures and vaccine development companies, but it is expected that it will take a considerable amount of time to commercialize the coronavirus as mutations continue to occur.


Therefore, it can be said that the development of effective therapeutic agents is more realistic in the present difficult and urgent situation.

 A total of nine companies, including Repure Life Science, are under development for a new drug treatment for COVID-19 in Korea, and there are no companies that have entered the forest stage right away, but companies that have entered the COVID-19 are predicted to come out soon, according to the COVID-19 special issue.
