The Health Ministry warned on Thursday against using the “N Corona” supplement publicized by the haredi news outlet Kikar HaShabbat last week, stressing that the treatment had not undergone any professional testing or approval.
“The N Corona drops have never received the approval of the Helsinki Committee from hospitals in Israel needed in order to carry out clinical trials,” wrote the Health Ministry in a statement. “It is forbidden to attribute medicinal properties to dietary supplements, and this is misleading to the public.”
“The product itself has not been tested or approved for use or marketing, the product marking is incorrect and does not include the address of the place of production, ingredients or nutritional information,” wrote the Health Ministry, adding that it would act against the factory behind the N Corona supplement and those who market products that could mislead the public.
Kikar HaShabbat first published a report on the supplement produced by Natan Chaim and NCORONA on Tuesday.
