The ministry of Health on Friday cautioned Kenyans against taking lemon, honey and ginger with the perception that it cures Covid-19.
Acting Director general for Health, Dr. Patrick Amoth said the three products are a good source of vitamins but are not a cure for Covid-19.
His statement comes on the backdrop of increased prices of lemon and ginger in the country.
Ginger, lemon and honey are good because they are sources of vitamins and micro nutrients, but the message to take home today is that there is still no cure for COVID-19,I will not stop you from taking your ginger honey or lemon as many times as you want but for sure it’s not a treatment for COVID-19.” Dr. Amoth said
Dr. Amoth who had accompanied health CS Mutahi Kagwe on a tour of Kisii county’s health Facilities spoke following the announcement of 727 new cases of Covid-19 in the country.
The country’s Covid-19 tally currently stands at 25,138.
