Eight months since the emergence of the deadly virus, an effective coronavirus cure is still not within reach.
Countries are scrambling to find medicines or practices to manage the symptoms to prevent the escalating of cases. However, health authorities have cautioned against the use of such untested remedies.
WHO prescribes self-care to manage the symptoms of coronavirus while a vaccine or medicine has not been found. Below are the three controversial coronavirus cures that you should take caution of.
Hydroxychloroquine is a topic of debate in the United States, which recorded more than five million cases at the time of this writing. The use of anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine has been endorsed by US President Donald Trump and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.
Dr. Anthony Fauci claimed that clinical trials have shown that hydroxychloroquine does not reduce deaths nor provide clinical benefits among hospitalised COVID-19 patients, and there is currently no data about the drug’s ability to prevent COVID-19.
The World Health Organisation and the US Food and Drug Administration warned against the use of the drug outside of a hospital or formal study citing serious heart rhythm problems and other safety issues, including blood and lymph system disorders, kidney injuries, and liver problems and failure.
Covid-Organics is an herbal tonic made from the Artemisia plant, which has been used to treat malaria. This herbal medicine is endorsed by Andry Rajoelina, president of Madagascar, claiming that it can prevent and cure the coronavirus disease.
Covid-Organics was developed and produced in Madagascar by the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research. Madagascar was the first country to decide to integrate Artemisia into COVID-19 treatment when the NGO Maison de l’Artemisia France contacted numerous African countries during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bleach-like agent chlorine dioxide has been approved by the Senate in Bolivia as a coronavirus cure. However, WHO squashed the claims saying that while it can be used in cleaning products to kill the virus on surfaces, you should never. drink It. It can be extremely dangerous, and can lead to serious health consequences.
