He who is his own doctor has a fool for a patient

I have paraphrased the English proverb that says “He who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client.” I think the medical version is appropriate for our present situation.

For someone to self-diagnose themselves as having COVID-19 and then to proclaim to have cured himself through some novel procedure unknown to medical science is not only foolish, but dangerous. Following such advice could be deadly for others.

It seems that this is a situation where we should shun all bogus medical advice, but as always there are a host of charlatans out there telling us stories and prescribing cures.
