Myth about COVID-19

The new coronavirus CANNOT be transmitted through mosquito bites.
The new coronavirus is a respiratory virus which spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose. To date there has been no information nor evidence to suggest that the new coronavirus could be transmitted by mosquitoes.
Cold weather and snow CANNOT kill the new coronavirus.
There is no reason to believe that cold weather can kill the new coronavirus or other diseases. The normal human body temperature remains around 36.5°C to 37°C, regardless of the external temperature or weather.
Antibiotics do not work against viruses, only bacteria

The new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a virus and, therefore, antibiotics should not be used as a means of prevention or treatment.

However, if you are hospitalized for the 2019-nCoV, you may receive antibiotics because bacterial co-infection is possible.

The new coronavirus cannot be transmitted through goods manufactured in China or any country reporting COVID-19 cases.
Yes it is safe. People receiving imported goods or packages from China are not exposed to the risk of getting the new coronavirus. We know from experience that it is very unlikely that the virus would survive for a long time on things such as letters or packages.
There is no evidence from the current outbreak that eating garlic has protected people from the new coronavirus

Garlic is a healthy food that may have some antimicrobial properties. However, there is no evidence from the current outbreak that eating garlic has protected people from the new coronavirus.
