It is likely that the beneficial effect of glucocorticoids in severe viral respiratory infections is dependent on the selection of the right dose, at the right time, in the right patient. But in Kashmir we have observed that medical shopkeepers prescribe steroids even in asymptomatic and mild covid cases which can prove dangerous for the whole society. Therefore, the government should ban the sale of "Steroids" by retail shopkeepers. They are treating Covid positive persons with the wrong dose and at the wrong time including asymptomatic ones.
