As we Know the pandemic COVID-19 is spreading quickly all over the World & almost 150+ countries are infected from it even after early precautions ,but this Virus is not stopping from spreading which causes alot chaos and panic in people of infected countries and destroying them economically & mentally .This virus put has shut everything off like sporting activities ,Educational institutes and many government offices for the cause of safety all over the globe.
Lets now talk about some myths about COVID-19 which are totally wrong and we must know it !
Myth 1 : Corona Virus will go away in summer months !
It is totally wrong, as previous pandemics didn’t follow weather patterns plus as we enter summer, there will be winters in the southern hemisphere , Virus is global which quite alarming for us !.
Myth 2 :
In summer ,the virus will spread more due to mosquito bites !
Wrong this infection is spread via respiratory droplets ,not blood . Mosquito don’t spread it .
Myth 3 :
If you can hold your breath for ten seconds without discomfort , you don’t have it !
That is also not true , Most young patients with corona virus will be able to hold their breaths for much longer than 10 seconds & many elderly patients without the virus won’t be able to do it .
Myth 4 :
Since COVID-19 testing is unavailable , we should donate blood , the blood bank laboratories will test for it !
No Blood bank is testing for corona virus in the world right now so this attempt will fail. Blood Donation is a sacred exercise ,Lets make sure we are motivated by the right reasons.
Myth 5 :
Corona Virus lives in the throat, so drinking a lot of water will wash & push it away into your stomach where the acid will kill it !
Virus may gain entry via throat but it penetrates into host cells .You cant wash it away ,plus excessive water will make you run to the toilet.
Myth 6 :
Car Accidents kill 30,000 people annually ,what’s the big deal with COVID-19 !
This is totally a lame excuse to not get panic from it , without a doubt car accidents are not contagious their fatalities don’t double every three days, they don’t cause mass panic or a market crash.
Myth 7 :
Hand Sanitizers are better than soap and water !
Wrong , Soap and water actually kills and washes away the virus from the skin , plus it also cleans visible soiling of hands . Don’t worry if sanitizers was sold out at your supermarket.
Myth 8 :
One of the best strategies to prevent COVID-19 is to clean every door knob in your home with disinfectants !
Wrong ,Hand washing or maintaining 6ft distance is best practice .Unless you are caring for COVID-19 patient at home . Your home surfaces should not be at big risks.
Myth 9 :
COVID-19 was deliberately spread by ( depending upon your politics and your affairs with other foreign countries ). !
Fact : Like seriously you guys are still believing such nonsense. Viruses can change over time. Occasionally, a disease outbreak happens when a virus that is common in an animal such as a pig, bat or bird undergoes changes and passes to humans. This is likely how the new corona virus came into being .
Myth 10 :
TRUE or FALSE? A vaccine to cure COVID-19 is available !
This is totally false as, there is no vaccine for the new corona virus right now. Scientists have already begun working on one, but developing a vaccine that is safe and effective in human beings will take many months.
