Therefore, the advice provided in the viral post are wrong, none of them have any evidence to prove effective. In fact, some of them could be dangerous and have side-effects and none of the medicines suggested should be taken without medical supervision.
No vaccine has been made yet to fight with coronavirus. Hospitals are being strengthened and are giving treatment to patients at different levels. Do not take any medicine on your own without consulting the doctor. Contact a doctor if you have symptoms of coronavirus.
