The clip begins with the lady saying that the Chinese now understand the behaviour of COVID-19. She speaks about a medicine and says that in order to apply it one has to unblock the airways in the body. The lady then goes on to speak bout the safeguards.

She says one needs to take warm water every 20 minutes as this would wash away the virus. Gargle with anti-septic liquid such as vinegar.

This is the point that the audio needs to be debunked. This is not the first time that such theories have been floated around. While it is true that COVID-19 infects the respiratory system by directly entering the body through the mouth or nose, there is no evidence to support the notion that sipping water will prevent or kill the virus.

There is however some good advise that the lady gives out. She says that wash hands every 20 minutes and try to avoid getting the common flu. Both are very good advise and have been recommended by the World Health Organisation. However at the end of the clip she says that if you feel discomfort in your throat, attack the virus immediately by following the above mentioned steps. The steps being suggested by the lady do not work and if at all you feel discomfort, then it would be advisable to seek medical help.New Delhi, Mar 21: An audio clip that dishes out advise on how to fight coronavirus has gone viral.
