COVID 19: MYTH VS. FACT

Share it:


With Coronavirus being the big subject for discussion across the globe and a lot of information circulating its important to know what’s true and what’s not.  With some few information’s gathering from well known sites like the hopkinsmedicine.org page I feel it will be more appropriate to share. And oh yea the next time you seat next to a trotro passenger who looks like a scientist fully mask and dress help break these myth.

TRUE or FALSE? A vaccine to cue COVID-19 is available.
FALSE.

TRUE. There is currently no vaccine for the new coronavirus right now. Scientists have been working hard on one, but its not about developing vaccine but one that is safe and effective in humans which might take months or a year.

TRUE or FALSE? You can protect yourself from COVID-19 by swallowing or gargling with Bleach, taking acetic acid or using essential oils, salt, water, dry gine, Aketeshi (Local Gine ) ethanol or other home remedies.

False.

True. None of these solutions protects you from getting it, and some of these remedies might be even more dangerous. Best was by medics and experts suggest washing of hands frequently and thoroughly using soaps and hot water.
Avoiding close contacts with people who are sick, coughing or sneezing. Try avoiding your own germs by coughing into the crook of your elbow and try and stay home especially when you are sick.


TRUE or FALSE? A face mask and gloves is a best option for protecting one from COVID-19?

False

True. Certain models of professional, tight-fitting respirators (such as N95) can protect one from infected people in the case of contact.
Wearing a lightweight disposal surgical mask is not recommended. Because they don’t fit tightly, they may allow tiny infected droplets to get into nose, mouth or eyes.  The case of the examination gloves (Disposable gloves) when could grab the virus and end up touching faces under the mask becoming infected. So let’s keep spreading the information and lets stay positive in overcoming COVID-19.
