• No side-effects in the human cell, according to the results from In vitro experiments done at the Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology

No homeopathic drug has been put on trial. Try to stop it' s use if possible. Because placebo isn' t working in covid19. Homeopathy isn' t approved for Covid-19
