8 Most Common Myths About Coronavirus Busted, Here Is The Correct Information

It was in the month of March when the whole world started getting ready to fight against the lethal coronavirus but till now the situation can’t be said in control in majority of the countries of the world. What makes coronavirus more harmful is the fact that there is no vaccine for it and prevention is the only cure at the moment. The good thing is that the work of vaccine development is going on in a very fast pace but still it will take some time for the vaccine to be available in the market.

Symptoms of coronavirus:

Some less common symptoms are loss of smell and taste, sore throat, conjunctivitis, diarrhea, body pain, headache and rashes on body.

1. Only old people will get this virus:

6. A person is not COVID-19 infected if he can hold his breath for 10 seconds without problem:

Many young people who are infected with coronavirus are able to hold their breath for more than 10 seconds without any problem. However, many old people who are not infected with the COVID-19 won’t be able to hold their breath for even less than 10 seconds. So, in simple words, this is not the correct way to figure out whether a person is COVID-19 infected or not.
