Novel Coronavirus can be cured by one bowl of freshly boiled garlic water.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website publications disprove the statement.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website publications disprove the statement.An image circulating in social media has claimed that the novel coronavirus can be cured by drinking freshly boiled garlic water.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) in its advice for the public has stated that eating garlic is a healthy food which may have some antimicrobial properties but has clarified that there is no evidence that consuming garlic prevents 2019-novel coronavirus.

National Center for Biotechnology Information in a study states that there is insufficient clinical trial evidence regarding the effects of garlic in preventing or treating the common cold.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that there are no vaccines or antiviral treatments that are recommended to prevent or treat the 2019-novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

Hence, it is concluded that there is no evidence to support the theory about drinking boiled garlic water and experts have not recommended any remedy on antiviral treatment for the new strain of the novel coronavirus.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
