Scientist around the world are still working day and night to find out a definite vaccine against the Pandemic COVID-19. Many trials had their peaks and failure but there is a drug which was constantly resonating all this while - Hydroxychloroquine. We performed a systematic review of the PudMed, Google Scholar and EMBASE databaseto find out information on the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in patients infected with SARS CoV-2. Our efforts are revealing a promising role of this drug, if not as a definitive measure, then as a supportive and prophylactic medicine to reduce the impact of SARS CoV-2. We believe that along with the search for vaccine against SARS CoV-2, more specific trials should take place to determine the role of Hydroxychloroquine in dealing with the same.
