Hello Faith, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Indonesia is now a country that has been infected with covid 19. There is panic in some areas, causing discomfort. But in dealing with these threats we may be vigilant, but do not panic. This virus is transmitted through droplets or human saliva splashes. The spark can stick to objects, or someone's limbs before inhaling into the body and causing infection. Therefore at this time recommendations are set for better at home and avoid crowded places to minimize the possibility of transmission of these questions.
Responding to your question about preventing covid-19 infection using shallots or garlic so far there has been no research, or journals that discuss it. But you can apply it because basically there are no negative side effects on the use of herbal medicines that are guaranteed. Some things that are certain to prevent corona virus transmission that you should know and do are:
Wash your hands before or after activities. Especially when after using public facilities such as ATM machines, escalator hands, banisters, transport buses, etc. Avoid traveling to crowded places, such as malls, seminars, markets, etc. if you do not have special needs. Avoid shaking hands for a while, you can replace greetings with other ways such as greeting, or using elbows, etc. Use a mask if you experience some symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, etc. Avoid panic, such as buying up all the food, buying a mask, etc. If you want to pray in congregation at the mosque, bring your own prayer mat, avoid shaking hands, or make contact with others first. Get enough rest, and eat nutritious foods to maintain your immunity. That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
