Turkmenistan President Proposes Licorice As A Remedy Against Coronavirus


#Turkmenistan #President #Gurbanguly #Berdymukhamedov has suggested that The use of licorice could be useful to prevent coronavirus infections, although he has not indicated any scientific evidence to support his statements.

“#Scientists around the world are looking for remedies against the coronavirus, and one of them could be the root of licorice”, has declared #Berdymukhamedov in a meeting with other members of the #Government. “#Even a low concentration of an aqueous extract of licorice is able to cope with the disease”, has added.

The country’s #National #Academy of #Sciences is commissioned to carry out studies on the hypothetical relationship between the virus and a “widely” cultivated plant in the former #Soviet republic.

#Using plants to fight the pandemic

The liquorice proposal as a remedy against the coronavirus is not the only one made by #Berdymukhamedov. #Since the month of #March, #Turkmen citizens fumigate public and private spaces with alharma, a typical plant of the area which is attributed medicinal effects on human health.

#However, the #World #Health #Organization (WHO) traveled to the country and warned about the measures that were being carried out. #In that sense, WHO recommended that the personal protection actions being carried out in other countries around the globe be followed: social distancing, use of a mask and hand washing.

#Situation in #Turkmenistan

#Turkmenistan has not reported any infections or deaths from SARS-CoV-2. #Not even when the UK ambassador in #Ashgabat, the capital, communicated their contagion, did they recognize the presence of the virus within their borders.

The use of masks is not mandatory and shops and restaurants have been closed since summer. #In fact, #When the pandemic began, the #Government of #Turkmenistan, one of the most dictatorial countries in the world, enunciated a series of measures that prohibited its citizens from referring to the disease or wearing a mask under prison sentence.
