We are all subjected to a large amount of COVID-19 knowledge regularly, and not all of it is accurate. Here are some tips to say the difference and avoid the spread of misinformation. Micronutrients, such as vitamins D and C and zinc, are essential to a well-functioning immune system and play a key role in promoting health and nutritional well-being.

Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine are widely recognized as safe for patients with malaria and autoimmune diseases. Still, their use was not indicated and without medical supervision may cause severe side effects and should be avoided.

People should NOT wear masks when exercising, as masks may reduce the ability to breathe comfortably. Sweat will make the mask wet faster, making it harder to breathe and encourages the growth of microorganisms. During exercise, the essential preventive measure is to maintain a physical distance of at least one meter from the other.

The probability that COVID-19 will spread to shoes and infect individuals is very low. As a precautionary measure, particularly in homes where infants and young children crawl or play on the floor, consider leaving your shoes at the door of your home.

The virus that causes COVID-19 is in the Coronaviridae family of viruses. Antibiotics do not work against the virus. Some people who become ill with COVID-19 can also develop a bacterial infection as a complication. The health care provider may prescribe antibiotics in this case.
