Pharmacies in Bangalore are selling 'arsenic alb 30 p', falsely claiming that it prevents coronavirus
The Ministry of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, Sowa Rigpa and Homoeopathy (AYUSH), India released two advisories on the preventative and treatment measures that can be taken for the coronavirus epidemic. One of the advisories stated using Arsenic alb 30 to prevent the infection. Due to this advisory, medical shops in Bangalore started selling Arsenic alb 30. However, there is no scientific evidence found or research conducted which supports the claim that arsenic alb 30 prevents coronavirus. Moreover, the WHO states that "to date, there is no vaccine and no specific antiviral medicine to prevent or treat COVID-2019."
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.
