Clo says:

Sometimes i wonder whether i should cease posting my comments on the regular use/rub some drops of Amla oil on hands, forearms and face with mask properly placed and often washing as the virus/any variant is inert or degenerate in such oily medium and would not be able to enter our body.
Very few ppl would do so and the Authorities and Big Brothers will never recommend this for your life saving for Power, Money and Control etc as they have No Humanity or describe them as you wish.
To all those who say yes and no, to how much is enough or how enough is enough, Salut.
Vive la pandemie:)
Whether your system removes this i do not mind.
God bless.
