It’s been more than a year since The Pandemic started and spread throughout the world like a wildfire, more than a year since it shook the world off its regularity. The pandemic – and the people experiencing it – have gone through a number of emotional and physical phases and stages including uncertainty, disbelief, quarantine, lockdowns and a million misconception that were spread through Whatsapp, all credits given to our superstitious uncle and aunts. From your aunt sharing the most bizarre tips on preventing Coronavirus on her Facebook to your father sharing yet another one the conspiracy theories, there hasn’t been a shortage of myths and misconception. Let’s take a look at one of the most ridiculous ones. (Myth Weavers)
1. Eating Garlic Can Help Prevent The Virus
If garlic could help, I’m sure brown people would’ve been pretty much immune from catching the virus. The 10 Best Zinc Rich Foods That Are High In Zinc – You Should Add To Your Diet!
2. Heat Kills The Virus
Remember when everyone said that the virus would and I quote, “be gone as soon as summer-2020 would even start due to intense heat and weather”? Yeah, that was a good one.
3. The Outbreak Began Because People Ate Bat Soup
This one is still widely believed to be true when in fact, the scientists haven’t figured out exactly which animal is the source of such a contagious virus. (Myth Weavers)
4. Drinking Bleach Helps Kill The Virus

5. Packaged Milk Is The Reason Why Corona Virus Has Started Spreading Again
This one is fairly new to the market of myths and misconceptions and yet as ridiculous as the ones mentioned above. Do You Know The Pros and Cons of Pfizer COVID Vaccine?
There’s no doubt that even more myths and misconception regarding the novel virus will come in later days and will continue to do, which is why it’s quite imperative for the government and the media outlets to actively bust them by broadcasting shows and programs that help in the education of the common people regarding the virus, so that they, hopefully, stop believing everything they come across on Facebook and Whatsapp – impossible, but let’s try and give the older generation a benefit of doubt at least.
