26 Jun “Tuob” Does Not Cure Or Help Prevent COVID-19 Says DOH
Mga higala! The Department of Health (DOH) has clarified that “TUOB” or steam inhalation (with salt, lemon, etc.) cannot cure or prevent COVID-19 infection!
DOH released an advisory about this yesterday, June 25, saying that no scientific study can prove the supposed effects of “tuob” against the coronavirus disease and that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) has debunked claims about this issue.
Moreover, this “tuob” therapy can increase the risk of COVID-19 infection since the virus can mix with steam via aerosolization and contribute to the spread of the disease.
Steam inhalation also increases the liquid secretions in our nose that can further the spread of the virus through sneezing and coughing.
