MYTH: Drinking methanol, ethanol or bleach cures COVID-19; FACT: It will kill you


FACTS | APRIL 30, 2020:

The Government has rejected claims that drinking methanol, ethanol or bleach prevents or cures COVID-19.

In a tweet, Information and Broadcasting Ministry said doing so can be extremely dangerous.

According to WHO, Methanol, ethanol, and bleach are poisons. Drinking them can lead to disability and death.

Methanol, ethanol, and bleach are sometimes used in cleaning products to kill the virus on surfaces – however, they will not kill the virus in the body and will harm internal organs.
