As the coronavirus continues to spread and has reached every continent except Antarctica, there have been many false claims and cures regarding the virus. Medical News Today has gone through some of these false claims to provide information regarding fact versus fiction. First, applying alcohol or chlorine to your skin in attempts to kill the virus will only harm yourself, not act as a sanitizer. Also, all age groups can contract the virus and the effects it has on someone vary based on their medical history and concerns. Face masks such as surgical masks and bandanas can help protect you from droplets, but will not do anything against aerosolized particles.
