The number of cases reported in the ongoing coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic continues to rise across the world. The primary reason due to which the disease is able to produce so much disastrous impact is its novel nature, as the virus was detected for the first time and even now there are many epidemiological, clinical and virological characteristics which are not known about the disease. All the available facts clearly suggest the need that we have to strengthen the research and development sector immensely, otherwise the disease will continue to claim lives of thousands of more people and will eventually break the health system of each and every nation and negatively impact the economy of the nations as well. In conclusion, research and development is a primary focus of interest for all the stakeholders involved in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic. The need of the hour is to expedite the entire process and utilize the research findings in ensuring better prevention and effective treatment of the cases of the disease.
