Dinguses on Twitter and YouTube have been claiming that downing a shot of the solution will kill the virus dead, while neglecting to mention that it's bleach, and will cause things like liver failure if you drink it. Yes, you can use bleach solutions to potentially kill some strains of viruses off surfaces, but those surfaces don't include anything in or around your orifices. Don't drink bleach, kids.
Neither Will A Whole Pile Of Equally Stupid "Cures"
On February 4, 2020, the World Health Organization had to tweet that there is no evidence that garlic has protected anyone from the coronavirus. After much rigorous scientific investigation, it has been determined that the virus is not Count Dracula. While garlic certainly has its health benefits (it can help lower your blood pressure, for instance), it does not, nor has it ever, cured or prevented a disease. Because it's garlic.
We've all heard about how taking this or that herb might help treat some condition, but would you seriously put your actual life in the hands of mulberries if someone told you they could heal gunshot wounds? Any herbal remedy for a condition at best will help alleviate some symptoms, and probably only after extensive use over weeks or months. Popping a loaf of garlic toast under the broiler and hoping it protects you is probably just going to ensure that your corpse smells like an Olive Garden.
Meanwhile, a leader of a political party in India (Swami Chakrapani Maharaj of Hindu Mahasabha) suggests that you can protect yourself from coronavirus by rubbing cow shit on yourself. Almost as bad, the Indian government has recommended homeopathic treatments (that is, magic elixirs that contain no active ingredient), and advised citizens to do things like plant a drop of sesame oil in each nostril as a preventative. The best thing I can say about any of those is that they're mostly harmless compared to the bleach thing. But they also give a completely false sense of security to anyone who may actually encounter the virus.
