Dr. Faheem, Head of Infectious Disease from the University of Maryland, USA Tweeted some facts about COVID – 19, which have gone viral on WhatsApp and social media. He Tweeted, we may have to live with COVID - 19 for months or years. So let us not deny it or panic and make our lives useless. Let's learn to live with this fact. 

The COVID - 19 virus can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth, that requires close contact to spread. Washing hands and maintaining a two-meter physical distance is the best method for protection. 

 You can't destroy COVID - 19 viruses that have penetrated cell walls. If you drink gallons of hot water you will just go to the bathroom more.

If you don't have a COVID - 19 patient at home, then there is no need to disinfect the surfaces at your house.

Packaged goods, petrol pumps, shopping carts and ATMs do not cause infection. Wash your hands after using them and live your life as usual.

COVID - 19 is not a food infection. It is associated with drops of infection like the ‘flu. There is no proof that COVID - 19 is transmitted by ordering food. So don't worry about food orders. But you can heat it up in the microwave. 

You can lose your sense of smell with a lot of allergies and viral infections. It is a non-specific symptom of COVID - 19.

When you are at home, you don't need to change your clothes and go shower urgently. Purity is a virtue but do not be paranoid.  

The air is clean; you can walk in the gardens but keep your physical distance. 

There is no need to use antibacterial soap as this is a virus, not bacteria. So it is enough to use normal soap against COVID – 19 

The chances of bringing C19 home with your shoes are rare. Drop infections don't spread through shoes. 

Going / Entering the sauna does not kill COVID – 19 virus that has already entered the body. 

Drinking vinegar, Turmeric milk and ginger can't cure you of the virus. These are good for improving immunity. 

Wearing a mask for long periods interferes with your breathing and oxygen levels. Wear it outside, not inside the house.  

Wearing gloves is also a bad idea as the virus can accumulate (collect) in the glove and can be easily transmitted if you touch your face. Better just to wash your hands regularly. 

Stay healthy and keep safe.
