Clinical trials of 'Dhammika Syrup' still underway
A panel of experts appointed by the Ministry of Health to conduct a scientific study on the syrup against Covid-19 produced by Dhammika Bandara said that it would take another two to three weeks to announce the final results of the clinical trials.
The ethics committee approved the clinical trial of the syrup on 30 December 2020 and said they would be able to release the results in about two weeks. Meanwhile, many who have consumed the syrup have contracted the virus.
Moreover, photos of Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi and State Minister Piyal Nishantha drinking the syrup were circulated on social media recently. Both were recently diagnosed with coronavirus.
