The Ministry of Health of Turkmenistan again advises to fight SARS harmala. In Russia, it was considered a drug-containing herb

Residents of Turkmenistan are again recommended to fumigate the premises with yuzarlik (garmala).

Such advice appeared in an article entitled “Protect Yourself from SARS” by the Ministry of Health, which was published in the newspaper “Neutral Turkmenistan” dated August 12.

In addition to the need to play sports, eat citrus fruits and wash your hands with soap, it also says: "fumigate the premises with yuzarlik, the smoke of which destroys viruses and bacteria."

Since June 1, the requirements for the mask regime have been relaxed in Turkmenistan - now it is necessary to wear medical masks only in transport and indoors. After that, the police for some time (according to the observations of correspondents of "Chronicles of Turkmenistan" for about a month) stopped monitoring the presence of masks. However, at the moment, compliance with epidemiological rules is monitored quite strictly: residents of Ashgabat are invited to the next, for many already the fourth, vaccination, and parents of first-graders are required to provide a medical certificate confirming that their children do not have coronavirus before starting school.

Recall that during the COVID-19 pandemic, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov recommended protecting himself from viruses with folk remedies, in particular, with the help of harmala, a plant whose beneficial properties he described in his book. After that, they began to fumigate the premises where mass events were held.

Note that in Russia, harmala is considered a drug -containing herb. On August 9, the Kuban 24 publication reported that Novorossiysk customs officers stopped an attempt to illegally move dried harmala containing a narcotic drug across the border.

The plant was found in a container that arrived by rail from Uzbekistan. Among the dried fruits, rose hips, dishes and linseed oil, there were sheaves of dried grass weighing more than a ton (1,184.4 kg). The goods were supposed to go on a dry cargo ship to one of the countries of the Middle East.

A criminal case has been initiated on the smuggling of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances. The sender could face life imprisonment and a fine of up to a million rubles.
