The COVID-19 infection is in an epidemic period right now. People are still in the stage of gradually discovering and constantly understanding the source, infectivity, transmission route and diagnosis and treatment methods of the COVID-19.
Do you know what is coronavirus?
Coronavirus is a collective name for a group of viruses that can infect humans and animals at the same time, causing respiratory diseases. Minor illnesses are like the common cold, and severe illnesses can develop into pneumonia. The animal coronaviruses infect humans and spread among humans is extremely rare.
What are the misleading facts about the COVID-19?
Exposure below the sun or temperatures above 25 degrees Celsius will prevent coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
Exposure below the sun cannot prevent coronavirus disease (COVID-19). No matter how hot is the weather, you may still get COVID-19. COVID-19 cases have also been reported in hot countries. To protect yourself, always wash your hands carefully, and do not touch your eyes, mouth, and nose.
Drinking alcohol will prevent you from getting COVID-19
3.N95型口罩不能为人类提供保护 N95 Respirators cannot provide protection
N95型口罩是可以为人类提供保护。常规的口罩可能对保护您免受COVID-19或与此相关的任何冠状病毒的保护作用并不大。 而 N95型口罩能够阻挡“至少95％非常小的（0.3微米）微粒。所以N95型口罩与一般口罩比较来得有效。但即使在COVID-19期间面带N95型口罩也无法完全保证能消除感染的风险。
N95 Respirators actually can provide protection for humans. Regular surgical masks probably won’t do much to protect you from COVID-19, or any other coronavirus-related disease for that matter. N95 respirators are able to block at least 95 percent of very small (0.3 microns) particles. Still, even if fitted properly, an N95 respirator cannot fully eliminate the risk of infection.
Bathing in hot water can prevent getting COVID-19
Taking a hot bath cannot prevent COVID-19. Regardless of your bath or shower temperature, your normal body temperature will still remain between 36.5 ° C and 37 ° C. In fact, when you take a hot bath, overheating may be harmful to your skin. Washing hands frequently is the best way to prevent COVID-19. It can remove viruses from your hands and avoid possible infections caused by your hands touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.
5.新型冠状病毒可以通过蚊虫叮咬传播 COVID-19 can be transmitted by mosquito bites
COVID-19 cannot be transmitted by mosquito bites. There is no information or evidence prove that mosquitoes may transmit COVID-19. The COVID-19 is a respiratory virus, which is mainly transmitted through contact with respiratory droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes. To protect yourself, you should wash your hands frequently with hand soap and water, and always avoid close contact with those who cough or sneeze.
6.干手器对杀死新型冠状病毒有效 Hand dryer is effective for killing COVID-19
Hand dryers cannot effectively kill the coronavirus. In order to prevent yourself from being infected with the coronavirus, you should always wash your hands with alcohol-free hand-washing liquid or soap and water. After washing your hands, dry them thoroughly with a warm hand dryer or tissue paper.
Eating garlic can prevent infection from COVID-19
Garlic is healthy food and may have some antibacterial properties. However, from the current epidemic situation, there is no evidence proving that garlic consumption can protect people from the infections of coronavirus.
8.新型冠状病毒不会感染所有年龄段的人 COVID-19 will only infect certain ages of people
People of all ages may be affected by the coronavirus. People who are older and suffer from asthma, diabetes, heart disease and other diseases may be more likely to be infected with the virus.
WHO recommends that people of all ages could always keep their hands clean to protect themselves from virus infections.
Always remember to wash your hands and take good care of your health during the outbreak of COVID-19!
Have something healthy at Joies.
