The World Health Organization has revealed a set of things that one should not do to cope with the outbreak of the emerging corona virus, pointing out that many people practice it because they believe it is beneficial in dealing with the epidemic.
The World Health Organization called on its website, the need to stop smoking, wear multiple masks and take antibiotics, which confirmed their ineffectiveness.
The organization said that antibiotics do not eliminate viruses, as they only eliminate bacterial infections. Antibiotics should not be used as a means to prevent or treat Covid-19, nor may they be used except in accordance with the doctor's instructions, to treat bacterial infections.
There were rumors that smoking protected humans from the Corona virus, which experts and studies were quick to deny, and even indicated that smokers are more likely to be infected with the virus.
A Chinese study of more than a thousand patients with coronavirus found that a quarter of these people needed intensive care because of their smoking habit.
Michael Matay, a researcher at the University of California, San Francisco, said that smoking increases the risk of coronavirus infection, whether it comes to smoking regular cigarettes or an electronic cigarette.
