Bleach – On the surfaces it is a powerful disinfectant, but on the skin it is corrosive: one of the ‘tips’ circulating on the net is to spray it on the parts of the body that have touched potentially infected surfaces. But experts warn: “it can cause irritation and damage to the skin and to the eyes and to expose the risk of inhalations to concentrations harmful to health “. And also for do the cleaning it is better to use it “in the proper dilution”.
Ethyl alcohol – Also in this case, the surface is one account, the body is another account: ethanol or methanol do not protect against the virus and, if ingested in pure solution, can cause serious damage.
Beard – The fake news about the fact that those with beards on their faces are more exposed to the risk of contracting the virus stem from an incorrect (and out of context) interpretation of a 2017 research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and related to the use of masks at work. Maybe it can cause some more discomfort under the mask, but certainly no danger. “Obviously his hygiene must be taken care of and must be regulated – the doctors explain – when wearing the mask, so that it adheres well to the face, but there is currently no evidence that cut your beard help avoid contagion. ”
Conditioner – In view of the summer season, there is much discussion about the air emitted by the air conditioners, whether or not it is a vehicle of contagion. But, they warn from the Ministry, there isn’t no scientific evidence to support the thesis for which it should be regulated always on the lowest temperature. Just as there is no demonstration of the usefulness of drinking very hot water or taking a hot bath in preventing Covid.
Tap water – It is not dangerous: you can drink safely because conventional treatment methods that use filtration and disinfection are effective in killing the virus.
