WATER THERAPY OF COVID-19 PATIENTS BY ALKALINE WATER: A CONCEPT PAPER

COVID-19 disease which began its journey, in Dec. 2019, by infection caused by a new and unknown new nano sized severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) from Wuhan city in China has assumed the dimension of very serious pandemic of the 21st century.
