Myth: Once your coronavirus fever breaks, you are no longer infected
Dr. Horovitz warns that this doesn’t apply to every patient. “Many people with this illness think they are turning the corner and feel better and then the fever comes back. This is a pattern we are seeing.”
Myth: You can kill the virus at home by running a blow dryer in your nose
Dr. Horovitz says that this is absolutely crazy and no one should try it. For some reason, this myth went viral all over the social media platforms, and lots of people seem to believe it.
But “you can’t put a hairdryer in lungs where this virus takes up residence so this is useless and dangerous,” he says. Moreover, the World Health Organization (WHO) also states that a hot bath doesn’t work either.
