Onions or garlic work against the virus and kill it: The vegetables can help fight bacteria, but not the coronavirus.
Taking ibuprofen makes Covid-19 worse: This rumor spread on WhatsApp. Short answer: fake news.
Masks are dangerous because CO2 accumulates under them: CO2 is a gas and therefore does not get stuck in the fabric of the mask.
Under a mask, more moisture collects in the lungs, which means that dangerous germs can multiply: If a mask is worn for too long, moisture collects and germs can also form – these can come into contact with the mouth and throat area, but not with the lungs.
Taking disinfectants kills the virus: No, taking disinfectants is life-threatening!
Smoking is not critical at a distance of 1.5 meters: A distance of 1.5 meters is seen as important Covid protection. However, if you have the smoke of a neighbor directly in your face, 1.5 meters is not enough.
Sunbathing or temperatures higher than 25°C protect against COVID-19: The disease also occurs in countries where these temperatures prevail.
Regular alcohol consumption protects against infection: Again, this is just fake news.
The virus does not stand cold weather and snow: The cold doesn’t bother the virus.
Corona is transmitted in warm and humid areas: The climate plays no role in the virus.
Covid-19 can be transmitted via mosquito bites: There is currently no scientific evidence for this.
Vitamin C in high doses kills the virus: There are no studies that prove this.
Intermittent fasting helps against corona viruses: There is no evidence for this either.
The coronavirus only affects older people: All age groups can become infected, but the risks are usually significantly lower for younger people.
Influenza is more dangerous than Corona: The corona virus is considered to be more dangerous because it is more contagious and causes more severe infections. With increasing immunization (and possibly more harmless variants), however, this gradually becomes less dangerous.
