Hot Water Can’t Cure COVID 19- Immunologist Warns
The latest hoax making round on the social media in Nigeria is that drinking hot water will wash Coronavirus into the stomach and get rid of it.
Speaking yesterday, a Professor of Immunology, Prof Ganiyu Arinola said the steam from hot water might help calm or reduce symptoms of COVID-19 but would not cure it.
He warned people who are yet to be infected with the virus to focus on building their immunity to reduce the inflammation that could be caused by the disease.
“Vitamins A, C, E, are very powerful antioxidants that can help to neutralise the pathogens that cause infection.
“Zinc and Selenium are other micronutrient immune boosters,” he said.
