From vinegar to salt water, WHO fights coronavirus fake news

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The WHO has declared a war against fake news about coronavirus. The move comes as fears of the virus have prompted many to hint at a possible cure or treatment against it.

Thus, the WHO has created a list warning people that preventive “measures” such as vinegar, salt water, sesame oil, are myths.

According to the WHO, there has been no indication that these alternative methods work in preventing the spread of coronavirus.

“Although garlic has antibacterial properties, it does not mean it can protect you against coronavirus infection,” explains WHO.

The WHO has also clarified that it is not true that this virus is spread through packages or letters.
