Corona Virus Myth Marketing: Just Do it - III-

In my last two articles (Part One & Part Two) I discussed a few myths around coronavirus. Undoubtedly, the situation is scary and demands serious attention from everyone. But creating hysteria with falsehood is a different ball game. Let us look at a few more myths around the scare:

Heat & Humidity will kill Coronavirus:

If you believed it because Trump said it…then he also said that “It’s freezing and snowing in New York — we need global warming!” Maybe Trump is planning to prepare some magical holy water this summer by boiling the hell out of it! My opinion about Trump, even before his election, can be accessed here. But for now, let us understand that there is no evidence so far which proves that. COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in all areas, including areas with hot and humid weather. Alternatively, even cold weather cannot kill the new coronavirus. The normal human body temperature remains around 36.5°C to 37°C, regardless of the external temperature or weather. Going by the same logic, taking a hot bath will not protect you in any way.

Mosquitoes can transmit coronavirus:

I agree that if a mosquito was to land on your wife's face while she was asleep, it could be the easiest decision of your life! I also agree that in India mosquitoes are not bugs but a permanent feature! But, to date, there is no evidence to suggest that it can be transmitted by mosquitoes. The virus is a respiratory virus and spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose. So, be assured and laugh if a mosquito bites you…because it can be really milarious.

Spraying alcohol or chlorine over your body helps:

Utter nonsense, but let me tell you a joke first. A horse walks into a bar and orders a drink. The barkeeper says, "You come here very often. Do you think you are an alcoholic?" The horse replies, "I don't think I am" and vanishes from existence. See, the joke is about Descartes' famous philosophy of 'I think, therefore I am'. But to explain that part before the rest of the joke would be putting Descartes before the horse! Spraying such things on your body can be harmful to clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth). I agree that both alcohol and chlorine can be useful to disinfect surfaces and specifically chlorine for disinfecting drinking water or swimming pools under appropriate recommendations.

Hand dryers or UV lamps help kill the virus:

The first-hand dryer ever created probably blew everybody. I remember going to a church’s restroom where someone had written above the hand dryer "For a sample of this week's sermon, push the button." But as far as the corona is concerned, the answer is a big NO! Similarly, ultraviolet could be Illuminati's favourite colour because they don't want you to see the truth. But as far as the corona is concerned, UV lamps should not be used as UV radiation can cause skin irritation.

Are antibiotics, pneumonia vaccines or garlic effective?

A man, suffering from a miserable winter cold visits his doctor repeatedly without any relief. The doctor after a few visits advises him to take a hot shower and go out in cold weather. “But doctor,” the man protests, “if I do that, I’ll probably get pneumonia.” “I know,” says the doctor. “But at least I know how to cure pneumonia.” The problem with antibiotics is that no matter how popular it gets; it’s never going viral! While the antibiotics do not work against viruses but only bacteria, pneumonia vaccines are useless against the coronavirus. I know someone who has a dog that keeps eating garlic. Let me confess - the bark is far worse than the bite! Eating lots of garlic won't do anything against the virus, but it will definitely keep other people away. Garlic is healthy as it has antimicrobial properties but ineffective against the virus so far.

Let us discuss a few more myths in the next article…till then the only piece of advice, I have is…Please frequently clean your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water…Take Care!
