Coronavirus Rumors That You Should NOT Believe

  • 1

As of Monday, the coronavirus COVID-19, or 2019-nCoV, which originated in Wuhan, China, has infected more than 73,000 and caused at least 1,873 deaths. Medical institutes and governments are preparing for any possible wide spread of the virus, and people may be feeling panic reading reports on the virus.



A fear of being infected has led to a rise of various reports and rumors about the spread of coronavirus and how to protect yourself from infection. Unfortunately, many of them are harmful or racist and aren’t heling protect anyone. I searched for the rumors appeared on the internet and would like to share them with you today.



Vaccine and cure?


There is not a vaccine on the virus produced so far, nor have scientists found a cure for the disease. Now doctors are trying ways to release the symptoms to help patients feel better, and the disease is cured mainly because of the patient’s immunity by now.  




Chinese food and mails from China?


For most Chinese restaurants in the US, they’re sourcing food from the US. It’s unlikely that you get the disease from Chinese food.


If you are questioning whether or not to buy something made in China, just think about what a product has to go through in order to arrive in the US. It takes weeks to go before a product from China arrives at your home, and the chance that virus can survive that is very low.




Boiled garlic, vitamin C, and chlorine dioxide?


There’re also rumors that you can prevent or cure the virus by taking in boiled garlic, vitamin C, and chlorine dioxide.


There is no evidence that any of these can help, and drinking chlorine dioxide, for example, bleach, is extremely dangerous for you. When products made from chlorine dioxide mix with acids like citric acid, the toxic chlorine dioxide will be made, according to the federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.



Chlorine dioxide kits are sold online under names like Miracle Mineral Solution, Miracle Mineral Supplement, or Master Mineral Solution, often referred to as MMS.


It’s important to understand the facts about the coronavirus, and know how to spot what information is inaccurate so it can be reported and not circulated further. Read news from trustable sources, like CDC reports or national news stations, and double check the source of information if it’s from social media.

The flu is a much Bigger threat to Americans than the Corona Virus! In 2017-2018 it was responsible for 61,000 deaths. That is more than the Gulf War and the Iraq War combined! This is just one single flu season from October 2017 to May 2018. 61,000 people died from the common flu. Perhaps we should be more concerned about protecting other Americans from the standard flu rather than panicking over a virus that isn’t as big of a threat? 1. GET YOUR FLU SHOT 2. STAY HOME FROM WORK, SCHOOL, AND ALL ACTIVITIES WHEN YOU ARE SICK!! 3. COVER YOUR MOUTH WHEN YOU COUGH AND SNEEZE. 4. WASH YOUR HANDS WITH SOAP AND WATER. 5. THROW AWAY USED TISSUES PERSONALLY SO NOBODY ELSE HAS TO TOUCH THEM!
Still think COVID19 is like a seasonal flu? The major difference is the rate of lethality!

Plz stop spreading misinformation and pretending COVID19 is the flu...are you nuts?
5G is what is causing this.Fact China and other places like ships use it and it causes low O2 in the body.The body temperature increases.Lack of O2 causes a source cough.
WTF are you saying? If we stop using 5g, the "virus" will go away? You should probably check the tin foil hat on your head. Crazy sh*t is getting through.
Look it up
My how viruses spread when one believes it's just 'the flu.'  You must be so proud of your idol, the Donald. Swaying your beliefs, controlling your thoughts like that.  Don't look into his eyes the next time he's on screen. He'll have you convinced of i don't know what next.
