    Currently the new Coronavirus “COVID-19”, also known as SARS-CoV-2, has infected nearly 3 million patients and nearly 200,000+ people have lost their lives due to this pandemic. There is an urgent need to find an antiviral agent that may slow down the spread of the virus. The aim of this study is to assess and evaluate compounds present in leaves of Neem tree (Azadirachta Indica) as potential inhibitors for COVID-19 Main Protease (Mpro) (PDB code: 6LU7). This will be done by blind molecular docking using PyRx and Auto Vina software. The compounds Hydroxychloroquine and Remdesivir were used for comparative study. The binding energies obtained from the docking of 6LU7 with meliacinanhydride, nimocinol, isomeldenin, nimbolide, zafaral, nimbandiol, nimbin, nimbinene, desacetylnimbin were -14.3, -12.4, -12.3, -12.2, -11.9, -11.8, -11.7, -11.7, -11.4 kcal/mol respectively. Therefore Meliacinanhydride (Ki=33.36 pM) and the compounds from Neem leaves may be a potential treatment option against COVID-19. In addition to that the leaves contain others compounds like Quercetin, Zinc,Vitamin A,Vitamin B1,B2,B6, Vitamin C,Vitamin E etc., which may boost immunity also (Garba, 2019) .Further investigation is needed to evaluate the results of this study to consider Neem leaves as potential treatment option as it might inhibit the virus and boost immunity also.
    Hope this will be useful to all.

  4. Good afternoon / good evening my name is UMAR IMAM the 22 years old founder of AFRIK Designers. I’m super excited to be part of this great competition. For an entrepreneur like me from Nigeria to be recognised in the top 10 finalist of my category of the youth idea across the continent it means so much not just to me or my start-up, but also to my Country. It tells many young people that it’s possible! And we should keep pushing and Use our innovation and the resources we already have around us to create the kind of charge we want to see.
    Congratulations to all the finalist that made it this far.
    And to the CEC Organizers, my heart is glad I can’t thank you enough. Words cannot express how grateful I am.
    Thanks for your efforts in this competition.

  5. I am super excited that my project AdACause is a finalist for the best project in youth category. I would like to thank the CEC organizers for this opportunity.

    Congratulations to everyone who took part in the competition and wish you all good luck and success in your ventures. I got a lot of support from the EC community, family and friends and would like to thank all. I also got a lot of insight from the training material and blogs.
