The Government today advised the public not to experiment anti-covid medicinal recipes, circulating on social media.

The State Ministry of Indigenous Medicine Promotion, Rural and Ayurvedic Hospitals Development and Community Health said people have been encouraged through social media to consume different types of medicinal recipes used in indigenous medicine as a cure to the Covid-19 infection.

“It is important to have a clear knowledge of which ingredients are used to make an indigenous medicine. If wrong ingredients are used, that would not produce the expected results while there also could be harmful effects. Hence, people are urged to refrain from experimenting such recipes,” they said.

People are also requested to adhere to protocols of the WHO and the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health to prevent contracting, Covid-19 while consuming indigenous treatment to boost immunity.

Meanwhile, the State Ministry said the research on several indigenous medicines are underway and added that the Ministry would take steps to inform the public of the outcome once research findings are concluded. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    You are joking. You probably also believe they inject microchips as well with the vaccins for spy purposes.

    Interesting to see "expert" advice from non-scientists.
