Deputy Government Spokesperson Dr Energy Mutodi has revealed that  ukufutha or breathing steaming under an enclosed atmosphere reduces mortality rate on patients suffering from Coronavirus.

In a Twitter post on Wednesday Mutodi said, "New information suggests that drinking hot lemon, washing hands with soap and hot water as well as breathing steam under an enclosed atmosphere helps prevent COVID-19 infections and significantly reduce mortality among infected people."

However an Online Fact Check website disputed the solution proffered by Mutodi.

"According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there is no way to increase your body temperature to kill the coronavirus." The paper said "Lemons … can aid with the respiratory system, but there is no scientific proof of this effect [on the coronavirus yet. The disease can be contracted if the virus enters through the nose and the mouth.

The paper quoted Lawrence Chigbu, a professor of medical microbiology at Abia State University, Uturu, Nigeria who said that while it is possible that the use of citrus will help with the symptoms of Covid-19, there are no documented studies to prove that yet.
