World Health Organization declared COVID-19 as a pandemic on 11th March,2020. Without any exact cure or vaccine, this disease has certainly taken a toll of humanity. Computer-aided Drug Design (CADD) is the modern era simulator for aiding in finding cure before starting actual clinical trials in patients. We have not indulged into making a new drug but analysing the existing drugs as approved by FDA to find the possible cure options. Based on the above data from our study, we find that anti-inflammatory drugs like prednisone and anti-psychotic drugs can be used for targeting the spike glycoprotein of the SARS-CoV2 virus.
