Medical rumors of the Coronavirus should be ignored

Rumors about the virus in the world "more dangerous" than the disease:

Garlic Myth Prevents Coronavirus ...

There are many messages spread on Facebook recommending eating garlic to prevent infection with the Corona virus

According to the WHO website, although garlic is "a healthy food and may help in combating microbes", there is no scientific evidence that eating garlic may protect against coronavirus infection.

The South China Morning Post published the story of the woman who was hospitalized for having severe sore throat and was due to eating 1.5 kg of garlic.

Eating fruits and vegetables and drinking water are all things that help us to stay healthy, however, there is no scientific evidence for the benefit of any kind of these foods in fighting the spreading Corona virus.

The "superstitious" solution

Jordan Sather, who has a lot of followers on social media, starred that chlorine dioxide, a bleaching agent used in detergents and fabric bleaching, helps "get rid" of the Corona virus.

The US Food and Drug Administration said, "It is not aware of any research that proves that these products are safe or effective for treating any disease. It has warned that drinking" chlorine dioxide products can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and symptoms of severe dehydration.

“Homemade hand sanitize”

After the detergent companies, they promote myths to increase their sales and take advantage of people's fear."

In Italy, for example, which is currently a hotspot of the virus, fears of an outbreak have led to the disappearance of hand sanitizers from stores.

This led to a shortage of hand sanitizer in stores, which led to the spread of recipes for making hand sanitizer at home on social media.

However, the recipes seemed more suitable for cleaning surfaces, as scientists say they are not suitable for use on the skin.

Hand sanitizers contain ingredients that make them suitable for skin, in addition to 60 to 70 percent of alcohol.

University professor Sally Bloomfield, of the University of London Health and Dermatology, says she does not think anyone can make an effective hand sanitizer at home. Even a vodka alcoholic drink that some have decided to use contains only 40% of alcohol.
