UK-based Malaysian doctor debunks health minister’s claim drinking warm water offers protection against Covid-19 (VIDEO)

“The rakyat need accurate facts to protect themselves”

(MMO) – United Kingdom-based Malaysian trainee surgeon Dr Nur Amalina Che Bakri has debunked a claim made by Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba that drinking warm water can help to prevent the Covid-19 infection.

Many social media users have shared a video of Dr Adham’s appearance on RTM’s Bicara Naratif programme last night, in which he recommended that Malaysians should ensure their mouths and throats are always moist, as this will help to wash the virus down the oesophagus, so that it can be killed by stomach acid.

In response to a post by lawyer Syahredzan Johan, Dr Nur Amalina, who first came to the attention of Malaysians when she helped pave the way for Ainul Mardhiah Ahmad Safiuddin’s successful tumour-removal operation in the UK, tweeted, “Not recommended by doctors and it is no evidence-based.”

Here is the video of the Health Minister saying that drinking water can get rid of the virus. We need to ensure that the virus is removed from our throat, and drinking water can do that

If this is correct, I think this is a great life hack that everyone should know.
