Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) advice for the public: Myth busters

Everywhere you turn, new theories and tips are surfacing on COVID-19. Some of these are valid and accurate while others are not. The World Health Organization has compiled a list of myths with their truths, that is both important and interesting to read, including:

  • There are currently no drugs licensed for the treatment or prevention of COVID-19
  • Adding pepper to your soup or other meals DOES NOT prevent or cure COVID-19
  • COVID-19 IS NOT transmitted through houseflies
  • Spraying and introducing bleach or another disinfectant into your body WILL NOT protect you against COVID-19 and can be dangerous
  • You can recover from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Catching the new coronavirus DOES NOT mean you will have it for life.

Read about these, and many others, here.
