Amid the Coronavirus pandemic period, it’s normal for people to be uncontrollable, anxious, and feel concerned for their loved ones. And as the situation worsens, the world faces an increased amount of misconceptions, which are not good for us. In this article, we’ll be looking at the top 10 Coronavirus conspiracy theories making rounds across the world.
Top 10 Coronavirus Conspiracy Theories (The First Three)
The COVID-19 vaccine will come with a microchip
The first of our top 10 coronavirus conspiracy theories is that the vaccine will contain a microchip. Hilarious right? Well, despite that the world is clamoring for a quick discovery of the coronavirus vaccine, some people are not quite sure about its cure. They believe the chip may be remotely charged with an individual’s personal information.
A lot of people are blaming 5G
Another conspiracy on our top 10 coronavirus theories is that the virus is the 5G attacking our brain. Although a lot of people, including some celebrities, seem to believe so much in this theory, I still think it should be easy to debunk. That’s because biologically, it’s impossible for viruses to spread with the aid of the electromagnetic spectrum.
However, you should trust that people will always find a way to back up every misconception. In the case of coronavirus, the sudden push out of the 5G network coincides with the COVID-19 pandemic hit. As it stands, this particular theory has caused several damages around the world. In the UK, there’s a report of people setting 5G cell phone towers on fire.
Drinking alcohol will cure coronavirus
Some people have been going about saying alcohol intake cures the virus. However, the World Health Organization says there are lots of dangers around using alcohol as a preventive measure against COVID-19.
Next Four Theories
Eating garlic prevents coronavirus
There’s also a misconception that consuming garlic can prevent people from testing positive to coronavirus. Well, this is not true as there’s no evidence to back it as a potential cure for the virus.
Holding one’s breath for more than yem seconds means you’re negative to the virus
Although a lot of people claimed this particular theory was from by NHS, it’s not true. The only way to know if you’re positive to the virus is to go for the real test.
Taking hot water bath will prevent coronavirus
While a lot of people across the world believe that taking hot water can cure COVID-19, I’ll like to say this is not the case. The human body remains around 37°c or 98°f, and hot water has no effect on it.
Coronavirus was made deliberately in a lab
Research shows that many people across the world, especially US citizens, believe that coronavirus is from the lab. In a survey rolled out to about 9000 people in the USA, there’s a question of whether:
The virus came naturally? was it produced intentionally in the lab? Does it not exist? or was the virus was produced accidentally?
Fortunately, according to the results of the survey, about 43% believed it came naturally.
Last Three Theories
Coronavirus does not exist
One of our top 10 coronavirus conspiracy theories also says that the virus does not exist. Despite that a lot of people have died amid this pandemic period, some still believe it doesn’t exist. They explained that it’s only a plot by elites to take away freedom from us. Well, the virus is real and there are over 3 million cases so far, with 209,132 people reported dead.
Vodka can work as a sanitizer
Although there’s a release that sanitizers with alcohol convent of 60% and more are effective, it doesn’t make Vodka qualified. Unfortunately, a high percentage do believe that it works. I’ll advise you to stick to using the recommended sanitizer gel instead of Vodka.
Coronavirus cannot survive in areas with hot and humid weather
Another coronavirus conspiracy on our top 10 says that coronavirus can never survive in humid areas. However, this is not true as a lot of people in hot regions have tested positive.
