False information about the Corona virus `Covid 19` ... you should correct it!

Arab Weather - Since the emergence and spread of the Corona virus, a lot of information and misconceptions have spread about it, whether about the methods of virus transmission, prevention and treatment, in the following lines a correction of this information according to the guidelines and advice of the World Health Organization.

Coronavirus disease (Covid-19) is caused by a virus, not a bacterium

The virus that causes Covid-19 disease is descended from a strain of viruses called corona, or coronavirus. Antibiotics have no effect on viruses, but some people who develop Covid-19 may have complications and develop pneumonia. In this case, your health care provider may recommend an antibiotic to treat the infection.

There is currently no drug licensed to treat COVID-19. If you develop symptoms of the disease, contact your physician or the designated COVID-19 hotline in your country to seek help.

The COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in hot and humid climates

From the evidence available to date, the COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in all regions, including hot and humid areas. Whatever the climate, take precautionary measures if you live in an area where cases of COVID-19 infection have been reported or intend to travel to. Perhaps the best way to protect yourself from contracting Covid-19 disease is to wash your hands regularly. By doing this, you can get rid of viruses that may be stuck in your hands and thus avoid possible infection if you touch your eyes, mouth or nose.

Can a muzzle be worn while playing sports?

The muzzle should not be worn during exercise, because the muzzle may limit the ability to breathe comfortably, and the muzzle may get wet due to sweat, which makes it difficult to breathe and promotes the growth of microbes.

The most important preventive measure while playing sports is physical spacing of at least one meter from others.

Can the Covid-19 virus be spread by shoes?

The possibility of spreading COVID-19 infection by shoes to individuals is very low. As a precaution, especially in homes where there are babies and young children who love or play on the floor, it is preferable to take off shoes and leave them at the entrance to the house. This will help prevent any dirt or debris that may be sticking to the sole and shoes from entering the home.

Does using medical masks for a long time cause carbon dioxide poisoning or lack of oxygen?

Using medical masks for a long time is not comfortable, but it does not lead to carbon dioxide poisoning or lack of oxygen. When you wear a medical mask, make sure it is properly fitted and tight enough to breathe normally. Do not reuse a disposable mask and always replace the mask when it gets wet.

Most people who get COVID-19 recover from it

Most people who contract COVID-19 have mild or moderate symptoms and can recover from it thanks to supportive care. If you have a cough, fever, or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention early by calling a care facility by phone first before heading to it. And if you have a fever and live in an area infected with malaria or yellow fever, seek medical attention immediately.

Does adding pepper to your soup or to other foods prevent and treat Covid-19 disease?

Adding chili and pepper to your food may make it delicious, but it does not prevent or cure Covid-19 disease. The best way to protect yourself from the new Corona virus is to stay at least one meter from others, and to make sure to wash your hands well and regularly. It is also beneficial for your general health to maintain a balanced diet, drink enough water, exercise regularly, and get enough sleep.

Are there currently licensed drugs to treat or prevent COVID-19?

While many drugs are currently under trial, there is currently no evidence that hydroxychloroquine or any other drug would treat or prevent Covid-19, and misuse of hydroxychloroquine can cause serious side effects and illnesses. It even leads to death.

Is New Zealand the first country to be virtually free of Corona after 100 days have passed without local transmission of the virus?

The World Health Organization is coordinating efforts to develop and evaluate drugs needed to treat Covid-19 disease.

UV lamps should not be used to sterilize hands or any other parts of the skin

UV rays can cause skin irritation and damage to eyes. Cleaning your hands by rubbing them with an alcohol disinfectant or washing them with soap and water is the most effective way to remove the virus.

Covid-19 is not transmitted by house flies

There is still no evidence or information indicating that the Covid-19 virus is transmitted by house flies. The virus that causes Covid-19 disease is spread mainly by droplets that are emitted from an infected person when they cough, sneeze or speak. You can also become infected if you touch a contaminated surface and then touch your eyes, nose, or mouth before washing your hands. To protect yourself, be sure to maintain a distance of at least 1 meter from others, and sanitize frequently touched surfaces. Clean your hands well and often and avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose.

Drinking methanol, ethanol, or bleach does not prevent or treat Covid-19 disease and can be very dangerous.

Methanol, ethanol, and bleach are toxic, and drinking them can lead to disability and death. Methanol, ethanol and bleach are sometimes used in cleaning products to kill the virus on surfaces - but in no case should they be consumed. These substances will not kill the virus in your body and will severely damage your internal organs.

To protect yourself from COVID-19, be sure to disinfect things and surfaces, especially those you touch regularly. You can use diluted bleach or alcohol for this. Make sure to clean your hands well and frequently and avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.

Thermal scanners cannot detect the Covid-19 virus

Thermal scanners are effective in detecting people with a fever (i.e. their body temperature is higher than normal), but they cannot detect people with Covid-19 virus.

Fever has many causes. Call your health care provider if you need help, or seek medical care right away if you have a fever and live in an area where malaria or dengue fever is common.

Fact: Exposure to the sun or temperatures above 25 degrees Celsius does not prevent you from contracting Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Covid-19 disease can be infected regardless of the temperature of the weather or the sun. Hot-weather countries also report cases of COVID-19. To protect yourself from infection, be sure to wash your hands frequently and properly and avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.

Being able to hold your breath for 10 seconds or more without coughing or feeling upset does not mean that you do not have Coronavirus (Covid-19) or any other respiratory disease.

The most common symptoms of Covid-19 disease are dry cough, fatigue and fever. Some people may develop more severe complications, such as pneumonia. The best way to confirm whether or not you are infected with the virus that causes Covid-19 disease is a laboratory examination, and not by practicing breath-holding, which may be dangerous to your health.

You can recover from the disease caused by the Coronavirus (Covid-19). Being infected with the new Coronavirus does not mean that you will be a carrier of the virus forever

Most people who contract Covid-19 disease recover completely and their bodies clear the virus. If you do get sick, be sure to treat the symptoms. If you have a cough, fever, and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention early, but call your health care facility by phone first. Most patients recover with supportive care.
