ℹ Stay aware of the latest information from WHO
There is a lot of false information around. These are the facts.
🔢 People of all ages CAN be infected by the coronavirus. Older people, and people with pre-existing medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease) appear to be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with the virus.
❄ Cold weather and snow CANNOT kill the coronavirus.
☀ The coronavirus CAN be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates
🦟 The coronavirus CANNOT be transmitted through mosquito bites.
🐶 There is NO evidence that companion animals/pets such as dogs or cats can transmit the coronavirus.
🛀 Taking a hot bath DOES NOT prevent the coronavirus
💨 Hand dryers are NOT effective in killing the coronavirus
🟣 Ultraviolet light SHOULD NOT be used for sterilization and can cause skin irritation
🌡 Thermal scanners CAN detect if people have a fever but CANNOT detect whether or not someone has the coronavirus
💦 Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body WILL NOT kill viruses that have already entered your body
💉 Vaccines against pneumonia, such as pneumococcal vaccine and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) vaccine, DO NOT provide protection against the coronavirus.
👃 There is NO evidence that regularly rinsing the nose with saline has protected people from infection with the coronavirus.
🧄 Garlic is healthy but there is NO evidence from the current outbreak that eating garlic has protected people from the coronavirus.
💊 Antibiotics DO NOT work against viruses, antibiotics only work against bacteria.
🧪 To date, there is NO specific medicine recommended to prevent or treat the coronavirus.
