Applying olive oil in nostrils is an effective treatment for COVID-19.

Advice by the World Health Organization proves that there is no specific medicine to treat COVID-19.

So far, no country in the world has been able to develop a cure or vaccine to contain coronavirus and no oil can cure COVID-19. The World Health Organization (WHO) also clarified that there is no specific medicine recommended to prevent or treat the COVID-19. WHO is helping to accelerate research and development efforts with a range of partners in relation to COVID-19.

Therefore, the claim that olive oil can be used for COVID-19 treatment is false.

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.
