Scientists carrying out research on the impact of virgin coconut oil (VCO) on people with Covid-19 say the oil appears to be a viable treatment for the lung disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

After six months of experiments, scientists in the Philippines found that a diet rich in VCO decreased the coronavirus count by 60% to 90% for mild to moderate cases, said Fortunato dela Pena of the country’s national science department in a radio interview on Oct 19 (2020).
