Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus says WHO.
The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is to be well-informed about the disease and how the virus spreads. Protect yourself and others from infection by staying at least 1 metre apart from others, wearing a properly fitted mask, and washing your hands or using an alcohol-based rub frequently. Get vaccinated when it’s your turn and follow local guidance.
The department affiliated to Medicina Alternativa has extended the opportunity to other Centres worldwide to run Academic programmes for the general public and students interested in Complementary and Alternative Medicines. The centres in various countries have academic members who are qualified, certified, and registered with practising licenses relevant to each country in Allopathic medicines and Ayurveda or associated branches which are legally valid in each case.
