There are many untruthful statements about the Coronavirus. Here are a few myths about the Coronavirus.

  1.  According to hopkinsmedicine.org, “A vaccine to cure COVID-19 is available.” There is no vaccine for the Coronavirus right now. It takes a long time to create a vaccine, especially for a rapidly spreading virus.

      2.  Another myth about the Coronavirus is, “The new Coronavirus was deliberately created or released by people.” The corona virus was not created. A disease already in an animal can spread to humans by eating the animal. This is the likeliest way the Coronavirus spread.

3.  Lastly, a dangerous myth is that “you can protect yourself from COVID-19 by swallowing or gargling with bleach.” This does not protect you from the Coronavirus at all. To protect yourself from the Coronavirus, Hopkins Medicine says all there is to do is wash your hands and avoid being to close to people who are sick.
