FALSE FACT ABOUT CORONAVIRUS

EACH COVID-19 INFECTED CASE IS SEVERE AND FATAL

 80% of the infected show mild symptoms.

IT IS ENOUGH TO WEAR A MASK TO AVOID THE DISEASE

The mask can only prevent the virus from infecting others only if the person sick. The best way of prevention method is hand hygiene.

HAND SANITIZERS SOLVE THE WHOLE PROBLEM

Most sanitizers are not able to protect the hands more than a good “water-soap cleansing”. Washing hands carefully with plenty of soapy water and rubbing thoroughly is sufficient for protection. In absence of water and soap, alcohol-based hand sanitizers that contains at least 60% alcohol can be used.

There is no scientific data on this issue. In fact, if the salt rate in brine is high, it may damage upper respiratory cells

DRINKING HOT BEVERAGES WILL KILL THE VIRUS

Extremely hot drinks can do more harm than good, as it destroys the “protective epithelial layer” and “preventive immune secretions”

IT IS ENOUGH TO WIPE THE INFECTED SURFACES ONLY WITH WATER OR WET TOWELS

Surfaces should be cleaned with diluted bleach or detergent in certain proportions. Simple detergents are just as effective as bleach

EATING GARLIC, ONIONS PREVENTS THE INFECTION

Garlic and onion are healthy food with antimicrobial features, but their benefits, such as protection from coronavirus, have not been scientifically proved.

EATING LOTS OF PICKLES STRENGTHEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM AND PROTECTS IT FROM DISEASE

Home-made pickles support the immune system, but excessive pickle consumption can also lead to excessive salt consumption, leading to hypertension.

OFFAL SOUP IS ESSENTIAL FOR THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

3 practices proven to strengthen the immune system are balanced nutrition, sufficient sleep and regular physical exercise.
