The Cuban homeopathic medicine PrevengHo Vir, which began to be distributed in the country as a way of confronting Covid-19, will be delivered to the entire population in stages, since the industry has the necessary resources for its production.
Johan Perdomo Delgado, head of the Natural and Traditional Medicine department of the Ministry of Public Health, in a press conference held on Wednesday explained that the product was first delivered to places with vulnerable groups such as grandparents' homes and psycho-pedagogical centers.
The medicine was also provided to the residents of Consolacion del Sur in Pinar del Rio (western Cuba) and is now distributed among the residents of the Plaza de la Revolucion municipality in Havana, since priority is given to those locations with the highest incidence of confirmed cases of Covid-19, he announced.
Each family unit, up to nine people, will receive a single bottle of the product from the family's doctor and nurse, who will explain that it must be used for three consecutive days and another dose will be repeated 10 days after treatment has begun, Perdomo Delgado added.
PrevengHo-Vir is not for exclusive use of Covid-19 but is indicated for the prevention of several respiratory diseases and helps to increase the body's response capacity to respiratory diseases, and therefore makes the symptoms milder.
