Can Corona Virus Be Cured By Drinking Ginger?
Can corona virus be cured by drinking ginger? Because I also have experience coughing, fever, sometimes shortness of breath (I don’t know whether it’s corona virus or not). After that, I drank ginger and suddenly my body became fit again. Has the research ever examined ginger against the corona virus?

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, this corona virus is a very new virus that is found, therefore there are not many studies that have been completed related to this disease. However, like most other viral infections, the corona virus can actually heal by itself without the need for any treatment. In certain groups (people who have certain comorbidities), this infection can be very severe and cause death. In the majority of people proven to be infected with the corona virus (especially young adults who are healthy and do not have other diseases), this infection is generally not too severe (it will only cause symptoms like a normal influenza virus infection) and so far it has not caused death in this group.
Basically you can be exposed to the corona virus if indeed you have a history of traveling to endemic areas or you have contact with people who have recently traveled to endemic areas. If there is no such history, chances are you are not exposed to corona virus infection, just an ordinary respiratory tract virus infection.
Ginger itself actually has an anti-inflammatory effect. Although it is most likely not to shorten the illness of a viral infection of the respiratory tract, consumption of ginger (for example in the form of ginger water or warm ginger tea) can help relieve symptoms caused by viral infections in the airways (such as coughing, sore throat) , etc). In addition to ginger, honey is also one of the natural ingredients recommended for consumption by people who are experiencing infections in their respiratory tract.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
