COVID-19 is spread through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks. People can also be infected by touching a contaminated surface and then their eyes, mouth or nose.
Viruses cannot travel on radio waves or G5 mobile networks.
Exposing yourself to the sun or to temperatures higher than 77 degrees F. DOES NOT prevent the COVID-19 — you can catch it regardless of climate.
COVID-19 CANNOT be transmitted through mosquito bites.
Hot baths and hand dryers are not effective in killing COVID-19.
Thermal scanners are effective in detecting people who have developed a fever (i.e. have a higher than normal body temperature) because of infection with the new coronavirus. However, they cannot detect people who are infected but are not yet sick with fever.
Vaccines against pneumonia, such as pneumococcal vaccine and Haemophilus influenza type B (Hib) vaccine, do not provide protection against the new coronavirus.
There is no evidence that regularly rinsing the nose with saline has protected people from infection with the new coronavirus.
Antibiotics should not be used as a means of prevention or treatment of viruses — they work against bacteria.
Social Distancing shouldn’t mean Social Isolation.
