Coronavirus Venezuelan president suggested ten drops
Whilst the rest of the world is working on optimising a legitimate vaccine against COVID-19, Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro, has presented Carvativir droplets, which he claims are a miracle cure for the virus.
Having given a speech on television for the entire country to see, Maduro showed a small bottle of the droplets and claimed sustained use of a short period of time could totally neutralise the virus.
“Having received the official health permit of the country, I can present the medicine that 100 percent neutralises the coronavirus, Carvativir,” Maduro explained.
“It’s best known as the miraculous droplets of Jose Gregorio Hernandez.
“Ten drops under the tongue, every four hours, and the miracle is done, it’s a powerful antivirus medication, it’s so powerful that it neutralises the coronavirus.”
What’s unclear is what the purpose of this medication is, will it simply work on people who have been infected? Will it work when a patient is suffering severe COVID related complications? Does it actually do anything to limit the spread and ultimately end the virus.
Generally, drops are a short-term measure to help an individual, but it remains to be seen how this progresses in Venezuela, although Maduro maintains that there are no side-effects.
“It doesn’t have any secondary or negative effects,” he continued.
Venezuela will export thousands of doses of the droplets to countries they share a trade relationship with, most notably Cuba, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Haiti and nations in the Caribbean.
