Cornonavirus is no stranger to the medical practitioners and workers. However, the current strain (nCoV) is different from the previous outbreaks. Prevention is better than cure. The WHO recommends respiratory hygiene and safe food practices to avoid the infection.
According to information available on the net, the symptoms of the current outbreak like the previous ones include fever, cough and shortness of breath. In absence of more specific information about the current outbreak, it is difficult to hazard a remedy.
A health official in India has suggested a combination of traditional Indian medicines and (Homoeopathic remedy) Arsenicum album 30 as a prophylaxis and cure against the current strain of Coronavirus. Homoeopathy does not work like that and suggestions like that are totally irresponsible.
If a prophylactic and curative homoeopathic remedy is to be selected, the whole record of symptoms of the infected persons will have to be taken into account. Only after a careful study and comparison of the therapeutic fields of different homoeopathic remedies with those of the totality of the symptoms of the current outbreak, a homoeopathic genus epidimicus can be selected from amongst the following remedies:
Antimonium tart, ARSENICUM ALBUM, BACILLINUM, Bryonia, Ipecacuanha, Spongia, Justicea adhatoda, Rumex, Belladonna, Hepar sulph, Hyoscyamus niger, TUBERCULINUM BOVINUM, PHOSPHORUS, Kalium carbonicum, Drosera, Gelsemium, Arum triphylum, Influenzinum, etc. etc.
The remedies in capital letters are more likely candidates followed by the ones in italics.
If someone shares more specific information, the above list can be narrowed down and possibly a prophylactic and curative homoeopathic remedy worked out.
