COVID-19: Myths and Facts

Coronavirus treatment

The tyranny of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has wreaked quite a havoc among the general population. People have never been so much frightened before. Avoiding close contact with people and properly washing your hand are some of the preventive measures that are worth taking. But that doesn’t mean you need to believe in every other news you find over social media regarding how to cure coronavirus and whatnot.

The idea behind this article is to make you aware of such myths so that you can get the actual information and share the same with your friends and family.

Common Myths and Facts

Here is a list of some of the common myths and the facts against them you should be aware of. But before proceeding with the list, always remember only believe in the facts coming out of trust sources like your country’s government and WHO.

#1 Myth
Coronavirus can’t be transmitted in areas having a hot and humid climate.
Fact
According to WHO, there is no supporting evidence that coronavirus can’t be transmitted in hot and humid climatic areas. As a matter of fact, COVID-19 can be transmitted in any areas regardless of the climatic condition.

#2 Myth
Taking a hot bath will prevent coronavirus disease.
Fact
No probable solution to fight against coronavirus has not been invented so far. Only preventive measures can be taken to stop the disease from further spreading. That being said, if you take a bath with hot water, chances are you will be burning your skins.

#3 Myth
Mosquito bites can transmit the coronavirus.
Fact
Surely coronavirus is a respiratory virus, and it gets transmitted through droplets when an infected person coughs or sneeze. But there is no evidence to support that the new coronavirus can be transmitted through mosquito bites.

#4 Myth
Use hand dryers to effectively kill the new coronavirus.
Fact
Hand dryers are not effective enough to kill COVID-19. In order to prevent yourself from such, make sure to clean your hands using an alcohol-based sanitizer and soap-based hand wash.

#5 Myth
Ultraviolet disinfection lamp can be used to kill the coronavirus.
Fact
Again, it is just a myth. On the contrary, one should not use UV lamps to sterilize their hands. UV radiation over the skin can cause irritation and further complications.

#6 Myth
Thermal scanners are a good detector of coronavirus.
Fact
Thermal scanners are only effective in detecting a higher body temperature than normal. Which means it can hardly figure out if you have a fever or not. That doesn’t mean it can be deemed useful to identify coronavirus patients.

#7 Myth
Vaccine for pneumonia will work against the new coronavirus.
Fact
No vaccine has been invented so far to prevent the new coronavirus. So don’t try out anything all by yourself.

As mentioned earlier, only believe news coming out from trusted sources. And above all, don’t panic over everything you hear on the internet. Stay vigilant, stay safe and always take preventive measures. Once you get everything right, you are always good to go.
