According to an official of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), one of the trials of virgin coconut oil (VCO) as a treatment for COVID-19 have been completed.

Philippine Council for Health Research Development executive director Dr. Jaime Montoya said the results of its community trial for VCO are currently being reviewed.

“Tungkol sa VCO, dalawang pag-aaral po ‘yan. Yung isa po ‘yung ginagawa sa komunidad sa Laguna. Natapos na po ‘yan. At ang datos po ay tinitignan na at pinag-aaralan na,” Montoya said.

“Yung isa pong pag-aaral sa hospital naman para po sa mga moderate cases ng COVID -19 na nangangailangan ng hospitalization, ito ay ongoing pa,” he added.

The clinical trials of lagundi as another possible COVID-19 treatment, meanwhile, have proceeded to Phase 2, according to Montoya. He added that the trials will take two to three months.
