Debunking the myths regarding CoronavirusCoronavirus is threatening the world with its dangerous and viral spell. It has affected many people in various ways. But, this virus is being presented, not the way it actually is. Yes, there is a possibility of you believing in "myths" about coronavirus that you have heard on television. Let's have a look at the famous myths regarding coronavirus and discover the reality behind these myths.
Myth No. 1: Getting Coronavirus means immediate death:This is not the truth, you might think like that.
But the truth is the opposite. It is similar to seasonal viruses leading to the flu, cold or mild pain. Only 2% of people have been critically ill due to this virus and have developed pneumonia out of this virus. This happens to patients with weak immunities or a detailed medical history with the various disease.
Myth No. 2: Coronavirus is the worst virus ever:People call this virus as the deadliest virus ever. Which is not true.
Coronavirus is not as fatal as it is perceived to be. You have a high chance of recovery from coronavirus if you have strong immunity and you are vaccinated against pneumonia. You can only get influenza and fever after infection.
Myth No. 3: Wearing a mask can protect from coronavirus:This is the craziest myth of them all. You might think or have heard that people say wearing a mask will protect you from the virus in the air.
Yes, wearing masks is a preventive measure for coronavirus. But this is not the ultimate solution to prevent the Coronavirus. Coronavirus might transfer via surfaces of contact between people. You must wash your hands, keep separate stuff for your use. and clean your place for more precautions against the coronavirus.
Myth No. 4: Coronavirus is originated from a bat or snake soup:This is a perception that developed among the western world and traveled all along to the east. You might also think that the same was perceiving the diet plan of china where this virus had originated.
The truth is that the disease broke out from a vet market where there are a large number of animals. We can not specifically target bats and snakes though as the source of this virus.
Myth No. 5: A package is shipped from China is infected with CoronavirusSeriously, this myth is laughable at best. Many people actually believe that using Chinese stuff or shipping items from China would carry the virus to them, and they will be infected.
On come on, whenever items are shipped, they are seal packaged. You remove the seal pack before using the items. The articles within the package are entirely safe from the virus even if there was a possibility of an infected person treating the package during the shipping process. And amazingly, this virus can not survive long outside the human body due to unfavorable conditions. You can also get rid of the virus using bleaches and cleaning chemicals on surfaces.
Myth No. 6: Closing Borders Can Stop Coronavirus From SpreadingThis what's done by most countries. China has been locked down by many countries that have denied flight operations. They have also evacuated their people from this region.
The virus may travel distances through the air. It should not be treated as something inhuman happening there.
Myth No. 7: Only Chinese People Have Coronavirus:As soon as the virus broke out in the Chinese province of Wuhan, people developed the perception that it can only affect the chines people as they are ones who eat bats and snakes.
By the time, the myth has proved itself to be wrong. This virus has spread in more than 100 countries and has affected more than 300 thousand people to date.
Myth No. 8: The Virus Only Affects Older PeopleAlthough the highest ratio of mortality due to coronavirus consists of old people, we can't say that coronavirus affects old people only.
Cases Of Infants and young people have been reported who are infected with the coronavirus. This mortality ratio of older people is due to the weak immunity of these people, which is the critical factor of coronavirus becoming critical.
Myth No. 9: Coronvirus Is Somewhat Related To Corona BeerCorona Beer is a popular beer around the world. You might think this beer is slightly related to the coronavirus, but this is a total myth.
The only relation between the two items is the same name, "Corona."
Myth No. 10: My Pet Give Me A VirusPeople think coronavirus came from animals including bats and snakes. This might make you believe that animals carry this virus and so do your pets!
This is the truth that an animal version of this virus also exists. However, if your pets are properly vaccinated, you don't need to worry about them! You won't get infected from them.
To sum it all up in one sentence, your chance of winning a lottery which is one in 40 million, is more than getting the COVID-19. Together we will defeat the coronavirus!
