Tokyo, Jan 20 (Prensa Latina) Japan’s Mitsui Onnetsu Co., Ltd. has donated to Cuba an ultrasound equipment that will help produce Curmeric, a natural medicine with proven antibacterial and antiviral action, diplomatic sources reported on Thursday.
According to the Cuban Embassy in Japan, the device left this Thursday for the Caribbean nation and should arrive in on Saturday.
“This equipment will be destined to the Calixto Garcia Hospital’s Theragnostic Laboratory to contribute to the production project of Curmeric, a natural product that contains extracts of curcuma longa and is registered in Cuba’s National Institute of Hygiene, Epidemiology and Microbiology,” the mission indicated.
It recalled that the formula showed high effectiveness to fight respiratory system infections, it began to be administered to suspected patients and contacts of Covid-19 cases in Ciego de Avila (center) and its use was extended to Havana (west) and Granma (east).
Curmeric, the Embassy added, is included in the rehabilitation protocol for convalescents of that disease and curcuma longa supplements lower glycemia, cholesterol and triglycerides in patients with diabetes and dyslipidemias.
