 Note:- •Its only partially effective, 50-60% at maximum,in mild and moderate cases. •It  is not a substitute for personal protection measures like face mask, hand hygiene,social distance and not touching mask or face. •Remember face mask remains primary defense against viral load (number of viruses entering inside when other person talks or coughs). •If  one acquires high viral load,no drug is going to be protective
