Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats. More recently, the Covid-19, a previously un-encountered strain of the virus has been making widespread news. As a doctor, I’ve seen a number of ‘protective measures’ doing rounds on WhatsApp and social media and thought it’s time to separate the myths from facts.
While these are just a few of the many myths doing rounds, I hope you remember to practice good hand and respiratory hygiene. It’s perhaps the most effective way to keep you and your loved ones safe!
