A former Provost of the College of Health Sciences of the University of Ghana, Rev. Prof. Andrews Seth Ayettey, has recommended the use of Hydrogen peroxide as immediate protection against the Coronavirus.
He explained in a Statement that on-going observational studies has proven the efficacy of the solution. Prof. Ayettey said eight frontline nurses in the COVID-19 management team at a District Hospital who used hydrogen peroxide had not contracted the disease and had tested negative since May 2020.
In comparison, 62 of their colleagues not using the peroxide had contracted the disease by end of December 2020.Prof. Ayettey, indicated that a Google survey to determine hydrogen peroxide use showed that even though the number of respondents was few, none using hydrogen peroxide have had COVID-19.
He stressed that none of the infected persons he has observed who used the solution as mouth wash together with vitamin C, zinc and other COVID medications have suffered serious complications of the infection but fully recovered.
He cited the use of hydrogen peroxide in Italy as the main ingredient for mass disinfestation as proof of its efficacy. Besides, Hydrogen Peroxide is an important component in hand sanitizers recommended by WHO.
To this end, Prof Ayettey recommends the use of hydrogen peroxide to protect people against COVID-19, alongside the public health protocols and other remedies being actively promoted by government.
