Chances are that we have heard of different drugs, food, and methods that claim to prevent, treat or cure COVID-19. Below are some COVID-19 myths that you should be aware of:
- Vaccines for COVID-19
There are currently no vaccines to prevent COVID-19. While scientists and researchers are still studying treatments and vaccines for COVID-19, none of them have been fully tested for safety and effectiveness.
Antibiotics kill bacteria, not viruses.
- High and Low Temperatures
Exposure to the sun or high temperatures doesn’t prevent COVID-19. Same thing with low or cold temperatures. Temperatures – whether high or low – do not kill the COVID-19 virus.
Disinfectants can help kill germs but do not use disinfectants on or in your body! They can irritate your skin and be toxic if swallowed or injected into your body.
