These days it is easier to get stressed out about the news relating to COVID 19 and also it is easier to find so many theories and logical explanations behind it. Not to mention China’s attempt to cover up the deadly Virus and Donalld Trump’s false claims that it was a myth ( more than 13 million cases in USA ). So here are some common Corona Virus Mythbusters and also why you shouldn’t have believed them in the first place :
1.) Summers Kill Covid 19 Virus
Although the previous coronaviruses – SARS and MERS – survived better in cold environments, there is no guarantee that the same will be true for COVID-19. From the evidence so far, the novel coronavirus can be transmitted in all areas, including areas with hot and humid weather. And assuming that the virus will disappear in the summer would be a false hope.
2.) You Don’t Have Covid If You Can Hold Your Breath For Ten Seconds
You cannot conclude this by holding your breath for 10 seconds. Many young patients can hold their breath even longer, while elderly people cannot hold the breath for 10 seconds even without the infection. The only way to make sure you are not infected is to get a laboratory test done.
3.) Spraying Alcohol or Chlorine All Over Your Body Can Kill The New Coronavirus
No, spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body. They are useful to disinfect surfaces when used under appropriate recommendations. But using them on your body can be harmful for your clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth).
4.) Eating Garlic Will Prevent The Infection
Garlic is a popular remedy for helping to boost the immune system because of its antimicrobial properties. People think it also prevents COVID-19 infection. However, the WHO has already cleared that there is no evidence whatsoever that it prevents the virus.
