Finally the doctor took one of the bowls with peeled onions and with the bacteriological method the doctor found that the entire surface of the onion was full of viruses and germs that were already inactive.The onion turns out to suck the virus and germs then focus it into the intra-cell, then digest it in the vacuole and kill it.Not only viruses, but also bacteria, germs, all of them are collected there in an inactive or dead condition.
Then the doctor also saw that there were several shops in China that also installed shallots around the shop and were also free from epidemic attacks and found that their employees were healthier.Finally the doctor came to a conclusion: So place a few peeled onions in a bowl, place them in the bedroom and living room.Change every day, then you will be free from all viruses and bacteria including Corona virus.Finally this doctor made an experiment: He had a patient with severe pneumonia or pneumonia and was undergoing treatment.

Here’s the Real Facts
After doing a search about the claims of onion can overcome all kinds of virus attacks, even the corona virus, it is found that is quite surprising.Using Google Search, search leads to an article published on the official website of the Ministry of Communication and Information (Kominfo) Apparently, the news that onion can cure Covid-19 is a mere hoaks. This was explained in an article entitled ‘[HOAKS] Benefits of Shallots Can Absorb Viruses’ uploaded by the Ministry of Communication and Information on February 15, 2020.
Hoaks, the Benefits of Shallots Can Absorb Viruses.”This information is just a myth as explained by one of the sources of the National Onion Association (NOA). An organization representing farmers, traders, exporters and importers of shallots in the United States that has existed since 1913.In an article, the site explains that raw onions that are cut and placed in a room, then can absorb germs and poisons, are just a myth.
“There is no scientific evidence that cut raw onions can absorb germs or reduce air from poisons,” the article wrote. According to the article, the myth has indeed been legendary and spread throughout the world. “According to Kominfo, the news that onion can ward off this virus is only a long-standing myth, but it was revived in the midst of the Covid-19 outbreak that hit Indonesia today.

Not Scientifically and Clinically Proven
Meanwhile, evidence that onion can ward off Covid-19 is just a hoax published in the article Spurious Health Tip – Onion on Feet to Take Away Illness, published on hoax-slayer.net on June 5, 2018.According to the article, the claim of onion can absorb toxins, germs, and even viruses is not based on scientific evidence or clinical evidence. Moreover, onions are only placed on the feet or in the room.”The terminology that onion is a ‘magnet for bacteria’ makes absolutely no sense. There is no food that attracts bacteria, otherwise some are more likely to multiply bacteria if contaminated,” said Dr. Joe Schwarcz, from the Office for Science and Society, McGill University.
Shallots actually have several benefits that are beneficial to human health. However, to get the properties and benefits, we must consume onions.Apparently, the hoax about the efficacy of onions to ward off the corona virus also spread to Myanmar. But the British Government website www.gov.uk denied this in a release titled, UK aid to tackle the global spread of coronavirus ‘fake news’ on March 12, 2020.The site reports one of the hoax news that spread in Myanmar is to advise people to sleep next to onions that have been cut or chopped.

Early Myth Development
The early development of the myth of onion can absorb all the germs, bacteria, and viruses described in the article titled Will an Onion in the Room Stop a Cold or the Flu? which is posted on .Quoting the statement of The National Onion Association , it was mentioned that traditional medicine by putting raw onions in the room began in the 1500s.During the bubonic plague outbreak that year, pieces of onions were placed around the house, to prevent people from contracting the deadly disease.
At that time the community believed that all diseases spread in the air. Cloud of illness or miasma is believed by the people in the past as a cause of epidemic diseases.During the flu pandemic that killed millions of people in 1918, there was also the habit of putting chunks in the room.So the conclusion is that the claim that putting peeled onions can ward off Covid-19 is not based on scientific evidence. Efficacy of onion can not be obtained by just putting it in the room, but by eating it.
