Beware: In the treatment of corona, take steroids only on the advice of a doctor, the loss will result in tremors
Coronavirus, which has engulfed India, has been taking a gigantic form day-to-day. In the last 24 hours, more than 4 lakh new cases were reported across the country and about 4 thousand people died. In view of the outbreak of the epidemic, it has become quite necessary that its treatment should also be completely under the supervision of doctors.

Dr. Kulbir Sharma, in-charge of Corona Unit of Jalandhar-based Punjab Institute of Medical Science (PIMS), has made a big disclosure about the medicines being given to the corona patients. Dr. Kulbir said that these medicines are very harmful for corona infected sugar and BP patients. They have described these drugs as directly adding fuel to the fire.
