Coronavirus has spread to North Korea. However, the country is trying to address the crisis without coronary vaccines or effective anti-viral drugs.
All kinds of traditional medicine has been urgent in all state media without foreign medical aid. This information has known from a report of BBC Bangla.
As the only country in the world, North Korea has long claimed that no one in their country has infected with the virus.
But last week, for the first time, the country acknowledged corona infection.
In the meantime, 2 million people in the country have shown signs of fever and 63 people have died so far.
The country is currently advising the use of some traditional medical methods –
Kusum hot drink
For those who are not seriously ill, North Korea’s ruling party’s newspaper, Rodong Simnan,
advises people to drink ginger or honeysuckle (a type of medicinal leaf and flower) tea and drink water from the eucalyptus leaf.
Such hot drinks can relieve mild symptoms of coronavirus like sore throat and cough.
In addition, when more water comes out of the body, its deficiency also filled. In addition,
ginger and yellow leaves help reduce inflammation and pain in the body.
But these are not treatments for coronavirus infections.
Hot water mixed with salt
North Korean state media recently interviewed a couple who suggested gargling with salt water in the morning and afternoon.
According to state media, one thousand tons of salt has sent to the capital Pyongyang.
According to some studies, gargling with salt water can relieve the common viral cold.
However, there is not enough evidence that it can stop coronavirus infection.
Laboratory tests have shown that mouthwash can destroy coronavirus.
However, there is no evidence that the virus can infect the human body.
Side effects of pain killers and antibiotics
State television is advising people to take painkillers like ibuprofen and antibiotics like amoxicillin. Ibuprofen helps lower body
temperature and can relieve headaches and sore throats.
But taking these drugs will not get the virus. Antibiotics given for bacterial infections, not viruses. Also unnecessary antibiotic use can harm the body.
Laboratory tests have shown that some antibiotics can stop the spread of other viruses, including coronaviruses.
But in reality it not reflected.
Last year, several countries offered to supply North Korea with a coronavirus vaccine. But they did not accept the offer and rejected it.
