The Himachal Pradesh government said on Sunday it will issue a directive asking people travelling to the state from Punjab, Delhi, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh to carry a negative RT-PCR Covid-19 test report after April 16, the chief minister’s office said. The decision was taken after Himachal Pradesh chief minister Jai Ram Thakur reviewed the Covid-19 situation in the state, his office said.

Himachal Pradesh issued a similar order for people entering the state on Friday but it only made negative RT-PCR tests mandatory for labourers of other states entering the state’s Spiti valley for work. It also asked contractors to present the negative RT-PCR tests before entering the valley.
The state over the past week has imposed fresh restrictions on gatherings as well due to a surge in Covid-19 cases. The government on Tuesday restricted gatherings at marriage ceremonies to 50 people indoors and with a maximum of 200 for outdoors. It also said that only 50 people will be allowed to attend funerals.
Himachal Pradesh reported 941 cases of Covid-19 on Saturday, which took the state’s tally to 69,114. The state also reported 12 fresh fatalities and now its death toll stands at 1,102.

Delhi, Assam, Odisha, Uttarakhand, Gujarat and Karnataka have also issued similar orders following the rise in cases of the coronavirus disease across the nation. Delhi on Saturday made the RT-PCR test mandatory for people entering from Maharashtra. The Odisha government on Thursday said any person entering the state via rail, road or air will have to present a Covid-19 negative test report. Assam took similar measures last Sunday making the RT-PCR test mandatory for people entering the state from Mumbai and Bengaluru. Neighbouring state Uttarakhand made the negative RT-PCR test report mandatory on arrival on March 30 after witnessing a surge in the number of cases.

WHO Hasn’t Approved Cure for COVID Involving Pepper, Honey, Ginger
There is no truth to this message and while honey and ginger may have soothing effects, they cannot cure COVID-19.

There is no truth to this message and while honey and ginger may have soothing effects, they cannot cure COVID-19.



A viral message falsely claiming that the World Health Organisation (WHO) has approved a mixture of black pepper powder, honey and ginger juice as a cure for the novel coronavirus is doing the rounds on social media.
But there is no truth to this message and while honey and ginger may have soothing effects, there is no evidence that they can cure COVID-19.

CLAIM

According to the viral message, an Indian student from Pondicherry University has discovered this home remedy for COVID-19, which has also been accepted by WHO. The cure is apparently a combination of one tablespoon of black pepper powder, two tablespoons of honey and some ginger juice, which if taken for five days, can ‘suppress’ the effects of coronavirus.
The Quint received a query from a reader about the validity of the claims made in the message.


While we could not find the exact origin of the message, we found that it has been circulating on Twitter since 11 June.

WHO Hasn’t Approved Cure for COVID Involving Pepper, Honey, Ginger

WHAT’S THE TRUTH?
Many such messages with claims about natural home remedies having the ability to cure COVID-19 have been doing the rounds since the pandemic broke. However, as before, none of these have been proved to be effective in curing COVID-19. Further, there is still no approved cure for the novel coronavirus and the world is still waiting for vaccines to be developed and approved.
In fact, WHO had in April 2020, denied that ginger and honey have any effect in curing or treating the disease. Speaking at a press conference in Geneva, Dr Michael Ryan, executive director of the WHO Health Emergencies Program, said that while it could have soothing effects, or even provide reassurance during an illness, it should not be assumed to be effective in treating COVID-19.


“I think we have to be careful from what we would consider to be the traditional remedies that people use for making themselves feel better during the common cold or the flu or any of this. We’ve all had illnesses, and some of us like to take a drink with honey, some like to take ginger...But it’s a different thing to say that something is effective in treating the disease. At this moment there is no therapy that has been proven to be effective in the treatment of COVID-19.”
Dr Michael Ryan
WHO also denied that such a cure for COVID-19 has been approved by the organisation at all. “This is fake news and WHO has not approved any such home remedy to cure COVID-19,” WHO officials told The Quint.


DOCTORS ADVISE AGAINST SELF MEDICATION
Further, Dr Suranjit Chatterjee, Senior Consultant, Internal Medicine at Indraprastha Apollo Hospital said that there was no medical basis or evidence to state that either of these elements could cure COVID-19.
“They might soothe the symptoms, they might in some way be immuno-boosters, but in no way do they treat the infection in itself. Once you’ve had the infection, they don’t treat it. They have no definite proven role in the treatment of coronavirus,” Dr Chatterjee said.
Dr Sumit Ray, a critical care specialist in Delhi NCR also told The Quint that there was no evidence that these kind of cures can help in either stopping or recovering from coronavirus.
“Earlier, in pandemics when there was not much medical management, solutions like these were like a solace to people. But at present, there is fairly good medical management which can improve outcomes, so trying to do these and not actually approaching healthcare facilities for the disease could be counter-productive,” Dr Ray said.



While black pepper and honey have antimicrobial properties, according to the USA’s National Institutes of Health, the latter has been considered a good alternative for antiviral drugs for the treatment of some viral infections.

There is currently a study taking place in the USA, in which investigators are trying to determine the efficacy of natural honey in the treatment of COVID-19 patients, but no conclusion has been reached yet.
Further, while ginger is known to be a natural treatment to boost immunity, it is not a cure for the novel coronavirus.

London [UK], April 19 (ANI): The United Kingdom is adding India to its travel "red list" on a precautionary basis after reporting 103 cases of a coronavirus variant first identified in India, health minister Matt Hancock said on Monday.
Speaking at the parliament, Hancock said that the UK has put in place the new variant assessment platform allowing any country in the world to use our genomic sequencing capability if they want to sequence positive cases in order to discover what is happening in their countries."
"We have recently seen a new variant first identified in India. We have now detected 103 cases of this variant," Hancock said.
"On a precautionary basis, we have made the difficult but vital decision to add India to the Red List. This means anyone who is not a UK or Irish resident or a British citizen cannot enter the UK if they've been in India in the previous 10 days," the health secretary added.
Hancock also said that UK and Irish residents and British citizens who have been in India in the past 10 days before their arrival will need to complete hotel quarantine for 10 days from the time of arrival.
The rules come into force at 4 a.m. local time (0300 GMT) on Friday, Hancock said.
The British High Commission in India said that the decision is to help prevent the spread of variants of concern and protect the most vulnerable.
" If you are a British or Irish National in India, or an Indian national with residency rights in the UK, you will now be required to undergo 10 full days managed hotel quarantine on arrival in England at your expense," it added.
The Russian Embassy's visa section temporarily cease its operations until further notice due to India's COVID-19 situation, it announced on Monday. (ANI)
