List of COVID-19 Mythbusters

  1. There are currently no drugs licensed for the treatment or prevention of COVID-19.
  2. Adding pepper to your soup or other meals does not prevent or cure COVID-19.
  3. COVID-19 is not transmitted through houseflies.
  4. Spraying and introducing bleach or another disinfectant into your body will not protect you against COVID-19 and can be dangerous.
  5. Drinking methanol, ethanol or bleach does not prevent or cure COVID-19 and can be extremely dangerous.
  6. 5G mobile networks do not spread COVID-19.
  7. Exposing yourself to the sun or to temperatures higher than 25C degrees does not prevent the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
  8. You can recover from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Catching the new coronavirus does not mean you will have it for life.
  9. Being able to hold your breath for 10 seconds or more without coughing or feeling discomfort does not mean you are free from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) or any other lung disease.
  10. Drinking alcohol does not protect you against COVID-19 and can be dangerous. 
  11. The new coronavirus cannot be transmitted through mosquito bites.
  12. Hand dryers, a hot bath, and cold weather or snow are not effective in killing the new coronavirus.
  13. Ultra-violet (UV) lamps should not be used to disinfect hands or other areas of your skin.
  14. Thermal scanners cannot detect COVID-19.
  15. Vaccines against pneumonia do not protect you against the new coronavirus.
  16. There is no evidence that regularly rinsing the nose with saline or eating garlic has protected people from infection with the new coronavirus. 
  17. Antibiotics do not work against viruses, only bacteria.
  18. To date, there is no specific medicine recommended to prevent or treat the new coronavirus.
