Busting myths, misconceptions, and misinformation about the deadly coronavirus, the WHO stated: “No. Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body.”
WHO: With 43 people diagnosed with the deadly novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in India, everyone seems to be going into a state of fear. And as a fallout, people are believing just about anything and everything they are coming across on the internet. One of the many facts that people ask for to stay safe is to drink alcohol and eliminate the deadly virus, which according to the World Health Organization is not true.
According to the World Health Organization, spraying such substances can be harmful to clothes, eyes, and mouth.
“Be aware that both alcohol and chlorine can be useful to disinfect surfaces, but they need to be used under proper recommendations,” the WHO said.
The most effective way to protect yourself from new coronaviruses is to wash your hands frequently with alcohol-based hand or wash with soap and water, according to the organization.
The WHO has also revealed that bathing with hot water does not prevent new coronavirus disease and can not be spread by products manufactured in China or any country reported in Covid-19 cases.
So far, the deadly novel coronavirus has now infected more than 100,000 people around the world and taken more than 3,000 lives globally.
