  2. Hey Dawn, don’t spread fake news by taking money from some pharmaceutical companies… Do think of humanity before committing such heinous crimes against human being. Dexamethasone, an immuno-suppressive drug, would rather weaken the immunity of a covid-19 pt. Here it’s war of strong immunity against covid-19. Where there is dire need of awaring the public of info about boosting immunity, dawn is spreading such a false news for money… Dexa is prescribed under certain conditions known to a doctor… Don’t lead people towards self-medication which is more dangerous than covid-19 itself…
