Tanzanians and Kenyans are equally stupid in their own unique ways.
In Kenya you have open tribalism and tribal gods that lie to stupid Kenyans every 5 years with false promises. In Tanzania you have unwavering support for their government that lies to them openly even when the facts point to the contrary and the people still believe it.

It is a proven way to open the airways. You put eucalypus leaves in boiling water then you inhale the steam and homa inakwisha. I do it all the time. It is a natural remedy for respiratory problems. Scientists have also proven that the essential oils that evaporate from the eucalyptus leaves have beneficial effects to the lungs and can combat respiratory viruses including coronavirus.

Promising phytochemicals of traditional Indian herbal steam inhalation therapy to combat COVID-19 – An in silico study

Abstract
Background
COVID-19, the presently prevailing global public health emergency has culminated in international instability in economy. This unprecedented pandemic outbreak pressingly necessitated the trans-disciplinary approach in developing novel/new anti-COVID-19 drugs especially, small molecule inhibitors targeting the seminal proteins of viral etiological agent, SARS-CoV-2.
Methods
Based on the traditional medicinal knowledge, we made an attempt through molecular docking analysis to explore the phytochemical constituents of three most commonly used Indian herbs in ‘steam inhalation therapy’ against well recognized viral receptor proteins.
Results
A total of 57 phytochemicals were scrutinized virtually against four structural protein targets of SARS-CoV-2 viz. 3CLpro, ACE-2, spike glycoprotein and RdRp. Providentially, two bioactives from each of the three plants i.e. apigenin-o-7-glucuronide and ellagic acid from Eucalyptus globulus; eudesmol and viridiflorene from Vitex negundo and; vasicolinone and anisotine from Justicia adhatoda were identified to be the best hit lead molecules based on interaction energies, conventional hydrogen bonding numbers and other non-covalent interactions. On comparison with the known SARS-CoV-2 protease inhibitor –lopinavir and RdRp inhibitor –remdesivir, apigenin-o-7-glucuronide was found to be a phenomenal inhibitor of both protease and polymerase, as it strongly interacts with their active sites and exhibited remarkably high binding affinity. Furthermore, in silico drug-likeness and ADMET prediction analyses clearly evidenced the usability of the identified bioactives to develop as drug against COVID-19.
Conclusion
Overall, the data of the present study exemplifies that the phytochemicals from selected traditional herbs having significance in steam inhalation therapy would be promising in combating COVID-19.
