With 31 individuals diagnosed with the deadly novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in India, everyone seems to be going into a state of panic.
And as a fallout, people are believing just about anything and everything they are coming across on the internet. Among several pieces of information, there is one that asks people to ”drink alcohol to stay safe and kill the deadly virus”, which, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO) is not true.
