Abstract : The SARs-Cov2 pandemic commonly known as Covid-19 has affected the word like never before in the recent past. At present a highly efficient drug is yet to be found which can control and completely stop further damage to human health and world economy. A need for stopping further spread of this pandemic in minimal time using drug repurposing without long term experiments has surfaced. This study was thus designed to find possible targets for covid-19 therapeutics. We did docking (Insilco) study to find the usefulness of three commonly used vitamins for this purpose. Spike receptor binding domain without receptor was chosen as the target and the Vitamins A, D and E were the ligands. We found that the vitamins A and D were good candidates for covid19 therapeutics.
