More Myths On COVID-19 Pandemic

Many lies surrounds COVID-19 pandemic. Some of then has been discussed in my previous post on "Coronavirus Myths". In this post, i will be discussing more myths on COVID-19 Pandemic
Below are more Myths on COVID-1 Pandemic 

16. Alcohol Reduces the Risk of Infection
Alcohol
In response to a number of myths about alcohol and COVID-19 Pandemic, the WHO released a statement. In it, they explain that alcohol can disinfect the skin, but it doesn't work the same way in the body.
They say, "Alcohol consumption is a health risk. High concentrations of ethyl alcohol (ethanol) can have serious health consequences. Which can include death, especially if it contains methanol”.
In an information sheet on the subject, they write: "Alcohol consumption, especially abuse, weakens the immune system. Thereby reducing its ability to cope with infectious diseases."
People are more vulnerable to COVID-19 pandemic because alcohol is associated with many diseases.

17. Home Remedies can cure and Protect Against Coronavirus
No home remedy can provide protection against COVID-19. This applies to vitamin C, essential oils, silver colloids, sesame oil, garlic, aquarium cleaners, sage and all the water for 15 minutes.
The best approach is to follow good hand wash programs and avoid areas where the sick can be.

18. Parcels from China Spread Coronavirus

Based on previous work on coronaviruses such as SARS-CoV-2, including those causing SARS and MERS. Scientists believe that viruses cannot survive for a long period of time in letters or package for long.
"The low viability of these coronaviruses on the surface probably has a very low risk of spreading on a product or package for days or weeks at room temperature," explains by the CDC.

19. You can get Coronavirus by Fating Chinese food
No you cannot.

20. You can get Coronavirus from Urine and Feces
It is unlikely to be true, but the jury is currently absent.
"Modern and sensitive detection mechanisms can detect these viruses in the stool. Usually, viruses that can be detected in this way do not infect others because the stomach acid has destroyed it."
However, keep in mind that some studies have shown that the SARS-CoV-2 virus can persist in the stool. A recent JAMA research letter also concludes that SARS-CoV-2 is present in the stool.

21. The virus Dies When the Temperature Rises in the Spring.

Some viruses, such as cold and flu viruses, are more likely to be transmitted during the cold months, but the symptoms don't stop completely.
As it is now, scientists don't know how temperature changes affect the behavior of coronavirus.

22. People Ate Bat Soup, so the Outbreak Started
Scientists believe the virus is of animal origin, but there is no evidence that it comes from soups of any kinds.

23. Coronavirus is the Deadliest Virus known to Man.
coronavirus appears to be more severe than influenza. But it is not the deadliest virus man has ever encountered. Other mortality rates, such as Ebola are high.

24. Vaccines Against Influenza & Pneumonia can Provide Protection Against COVID-19
Since SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus) is different from other viruses. Existing vaccines do not prevent infection.

25. The Virus came from a Chinese Laboratory.
The virus came from a Chinese laboratory.

Despite rumors on the Internet, there is no indication that this is the case. Recent studies have even shown that viruses are natural products of evolution.
Some researchers believe that SARS-CoV-2 may have infected humans via pangolin. Some believe it may be a bat infection, as in the case of SARS.

26. 5G helps spread Coronavirus
As the world becomes more connected, some regions have adopted 5G mobile technology. Wherever this technology is rooted, many conspiracy theories are emerging.

One of the more recent theories that emerge is that 5G is reason for the rapid worldwide spread of SARS-CoV-2( Coronavirus).

Some argue that 5G helps communicate viruses, but often relies on a 2011 article that concludes that bacteria can communicate via electromagnetic signals. Experts dispute this theory and SARS-CoV-2 is a virus, not a bacterium.
Wuhan, one of the first cities to test 5G in China, explains the origin of these theories. At the same time, Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou also launched 5G.
Also note that COVID-19 has had a significant impact on countries where 5G was barely covered.

27. Injecting or Consuming Bleach or Disinfectant kills Coronavirus

Consuming or injecting disinfectants or bleaches does not remove the virus from the body.
"Disinfectants and bleaches are powerful oxidants that help kill bacteria. Do not take or inject these drugs, as they can cause severe tissue burns and damage to blood vessels."
What should we do?

CDC Recommends the following Simple Steps to Reduce the Spread of SARS-CoV-2.
• Avoid close contact with people who are not feeling well.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
• Stay home when sick.
• Sneeze into a disposable tissue and then throw it or sneeze into the hole in the elbow.
• Use standard cleaning sprays and wipes to disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
• Wash your hands regularly with soap for at least 20 seconds.
• Use a face mask to cover your face in shops, pharmacies and other public places
