Prof Ngwenya: Don’t steam if you have COVID-19 symptoms. People exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms have been warned against steaming as this may lead to complications and even deaths.
Local health expert Professor Solwayo Ngwenya cautioned members of the public against self-medicating and steaming if they have COVID-19 symptoms saying they should be tested first before taking any home remedies. He said:
Please do not treat yourself at home if you are symptomatic. Get checked first. Definitely, do not steam your lungs, adding smoke, they are already full of virus, and glue-like fluids! Many people are presenting to hospitals too, too late.
This is vital, lifesaving and if one has symptoms they should go and get checked first because if steam without being checked they could worsen lung function and eventually die.
People who have contracted the novel coronavirus experience a fever or chill, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, the new loss of taste or smell.
Other symptoms include sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhoea.
