Myth vs. Fact

MYTH: The coronavirus was created and unleashed intentionally by people

FACT: It is likely that the Coronavirus was present in animals, mutated, and passed to humans.  This happens with many viruses and diseases

MYTH: Hydroxychloroquine will prevent or treat COVID-19

FACT: It is still too soon to tell which new or existing medicine will be curative or preventative.  However, in cases of people with heart disease and hypertension, hydroxychloroquine makes COVID worse

MYTH: You can kill the virus by drinking Clorox, gargling salt water & vinegar, or laying in the sun

FACT: Once infected, the virus cannot be killed without medical treatment – which is still  being studied

MYTH:  COVID is just like the flu

FACT: COVID is deadlier than flu.  It also has no vaccine or definitive treatment and is still not fully understood
