Indonesia has seen many suspect ‘traditional’ claims of Covid-19 cures since the pandemic began but now the Bali Governor has joined in with a new way to ‘speed up recovery from the virus’.

With no medical evidence to support it, the Bali Governor, Wayan Koster has made the claim that they have discovered a new healing method using traditional Balinese liquor (Arak) can speed up recovery for asymptomatic COVID-19 patients.

“We have a new traditional healing method that’s being used on positive patients. The infected [asymptomatic] patients who are quarantined are being treated with a traditional healing method using Balinese arak,” Koster said during a press conference in Denpasar yesterday.

“It’s very effective to speed up recovery. Two days of being confirmed positive and then the patient receives this treatment, on the third day they tested negative.”

According to reports, 19 asymptomatic patients have so far been given the treatment, and 15 of them are said to have recovered from COVID-19. Koster said that it takes about three days for asymptomatic patients to recover since the first treatment.

The governor reportedly has assigned a number of researchers to the treatment which involves Balinese Arak being steamed and inhaled using a vaporizer device.
