(ALERT: Visit the WHO for accurate information about the coronavirus pandemic) There has been a conspiracy circulating online that alcohol can cure Coronavirus or prevent you from catching it in the first place.
One argument says that alcohol is a disinfectant therefore spraying alcohol on your body will kill the virus. A newspaper in India claimed that drinking alcohol will help you prevent COVID-19.
The World Health Organization has debunked this argument on their COVID-19 myth busting page. The WHO declared that spraying alcohol (or chlorine) on your body will not prevent you from getting COVID-19 and can also harm you. Indian Boomlive Newspaper has debunked the claim that drinking alcohol will keep the COVID-19 at bay. There is absolutely no evidence that alcohol will prevent people from getting COVID-19.
