Mexico City, July 15 (However) .- The Health Secretary (Ssa) from Mexico updated the care guide for patients with COVID-19 among which the medicines that do not have scientific evidence to treat the disease favorably and stressed that so far there is no treatment that has been confirmed to cure the coronavirus.

“The use of the drugs they see on the list is not really recommended.

These drugs do have the potential to cause harm and have adverse effects, so they should not be administered.
