Steam inhalation is one of the most widely used home remedies to soothe and open the nasal passages and get relief from symptoms of a cold or sinus.
Some people are also recommending that you take steam for 15 to 20 minutes or as long as you can. But neither the World Health Organization (WHO) or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has confirmed that steam therapy is a cure for coronavirus infection. The CDC has also said that no such evidence has been found so far on the basis of which it can be said that the method of taking steam can end the virus. The usual technique of covering the head with a towel over a pan filled with hot water is dangerous due to the steam, the hot liquid, or even potential contact with the container. It is also believed that taking steam therapy can cause a person to burn or even have some type of injury in the nose or lungs. In such a situation, keep in mind that to avoid coronavirus infection. Steam inhalation can be more harmful and can suffocate you. So please do not try this as a method to keep Corona away.
