The Maharashtra government has approved the use of homeopathy medicine Arsenicum Album 30 as a prophylactic against the novel coronavirus infection and as an immunity booster. The government has started the process of identifying COVID-19 patients above age 55 years to administer Arsenicum Album 30.
In Mumbai, authorities had distributed Arsenic Album 30 in May among the high-risk population in containment zones of two wards. Its distribution began in all 24 wards after the state government allowed its use on June 8.
Subsequently, the Central Council for Research in Homeopathy (CCRH) received clearance to start a trial in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Surat, Hyderabad and Machilipatnam. “CCRH aims to generate evidence to support homoeopathic intervention as mass prophylaxis against COVID-19,” the Ayush Ministry had said.
While there is no evidence to suggest that Arsenicum Album 30 prevents COVID-19, homeopathy experts generally use the medicine to treat respiratory problems.
