The Democratic Republic of Congo and Guinea have started recruiting participants to test a new drug to treat people with mild to moderate forms of Covid-19, APA reports citing BBC.

The study called Anticov is the largest trial in the continent to identify early treatments.

“As we face a mutating virus that challenges the tools we have to fight Covid-19, research into promising treatments has never been more important," said Dr Philippe Duneton, the executive director of Unitaid, a global health agency.
