Scientists around the world are engaged day and night to remove the corona virus which is spreading rapidly. The latest information has come out that America's most powerful supercomputer summit is proving to be very helpful in finding its break. The summit has conducted 77 in-depth analyzes to detect compounds that can prevent the corona virus from infecting host cells. Scientists are very excited by this discovery. This result will make it much easier to make corona-controlled drugs and vaccines.

The findings of this supercomputer located at the Oak Ridge Lab in the US state of Tennessee have been published in the lab's journal. This supercomputer of the US Department of Energy was prepared by the American giant IBM. It has been working since 2014. Its efficiency is unmatched. In simple terms, it can do calculations about a million times faster than a powerful laptop. With the help of this supercomputer summit and experiments conducted on volunteers, researchers have found compounds that can stop the expansion of the corona. Around 8000 compounds were tried during the test, of which 77 were found which raise a silver lining.

Jeremy Smith, director of Oak Ridge National Lab for Malicular Bio-Physics, says that right now we are not claiming that we have found a cure. However the results that have come are encouraging and will be helpful in finding an accurate cure in the future. These tests will be repeated again to arrive at a firm result.
