Tamil Nadu Health Minister Ma Subramanian on Monday warned against steam inhalation without proper medical advice as a preventive measure against Covid-19 while adding that it would only damage the lungs. The statement comes as a clarification against the several messages on social media claiming that steam inhalation would help prevent the infection.
Subramanian said that if people have Covid-19 like symptoms, they must consult a doctor than taking medication on their own. He added that the treatment given to patients in Siddha Covid Care Centres is medically supervised and based on the guidance of a government medical committee.
