The Ministry of Health has received several reports on products that claim to specifically treat or cure COVID-19. These products range from hand sanitizers to herbal medicines and are mainly being advertised through social media. The Ministry reiterates that, at this time, there is no specific treatment or cure for COVID-19.
These products are unauthorized and pose a significant risk to patient health and wellness. The claims being advertised for these products may prevent patients from seeking medical treatment which can lead to life-threatening harm.
The Ministry has issued a warning letter for unauthorized products that are being advertised to treat or cure COVID-19.
The Ministry encourages the public to report any suspicious product claiming to treat or cure COVID-19 at firstname.lastname@example.org or 828-4489 or 828-4445. The Ministry will ensure that the incoming complaints are addressed and will continue to monitor the market on these unauthorized products.
