According to Mazi Osarodion (Odogwu 1 of Mbaise) @Son_of_Bello, who shared a video of a man explaining the recipe on his Twitter account, explained that he used the same recipe on three people who had tested positive for Covid-19, where two of the have fully recovered and while the remaining one person was recovering rapidly.
With the increasing padded numbers of infected Nigerians, I’d like to share this to those that may be having symptoms of COVID-19. We have recovered 2 people and 1 is recovering rapidly. Since there’s no universal cure for the virus, WE GO LOCAL! #StaySafe pic.twitter.com/zMvdffyDuc

- Ginger and Garlic tea
- Panadol (pain reliever)
- Bland the Ginger, Garlic, and lime, making it into a paste.
- After that, you put two tea bags of your Ginger and Garlic tea into a cup of warm water.
- Scope one teaspoon of your Ginger, Garlic, and Lime paste into your cup of Ginger and Garlic tea.
- Then add your panadol to the mix and you are good to go.

Cut pawpaw leaves, dogoyaro leaves, lemongrass leaves, mango leaves, plantain leaves, ginger, garlic, lime or lemon.
Put all in a big put that can contain 30 – 40 liters of water and cook it till 100°©
Then cover yourself and steam with it.

For now, there is no official cure for COVID-19, as the country continues to record more and more coronavirus cases on a daily basis.
There is no harm in trying out some traditional remedies. Ginger, Garlic, Lime, Lemon, and Vitamin C are known for boosting the immune system, which is what the human body relies on to fight the virus.
I personally don’t think one has to wait to get the virus before boosting one’s immune system, take anything that can boost up your immune system, practice social distancing, wash your hands regularly or use hand sanitizer, stay at home and if you must go out make sure to use a face mask, hand gloves and carry your hand sanitizer with you.
Stay safe guys.
