COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus, spreads from Wuhan, China, to many other countries. Numbers of rumours and myths are surrounding it. So the below quiz is prepared in order to prevent the wrong information from spreading further. The below quiz will help you out to bust some myths about Coronavirus.

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Social Distancing is the only way Coronavirus can be stopped from spreading.  

    • A.

      Yes, be at home and be safe

    • B.

      No, human is a social animal

    • C.

      Maybe, don’t know much

    • D.

      Not sure about this

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes, be at home and be safe
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Yes, be at home and be safe." This answer aligns with the statement that social distancing is the only way Coronavirus can be stopped from spreading. By staying at home and limiting social interactions, individuals can reduce the risk of contracting and spreading the virus. This is supported by recommendations from health experts and governments worldwide, who emphasize the importance of social distancing as a preventive measure against COVID-19.

    Holding breathe for 10 seconds can save you from Coronavirus.  

    • A.

      Yes, this is a life saviour

    • B.

      No, this is not possible 

    • C.

      Maybe, it can help

    • D.

      Don’t know much

    Correct Answer
    B. No, this is not possible 
    Explanation
    Holding your breath for 10 seconds cannot save you from the coronavirus. The virus is primarily transmitted through respiratory droplets, and holding your breath does not prevent the inhalation of these droplets. Additionally, the virus can also be transmitted through contact with contaminated surfaces, so breath-holding would not provide protection in those cases either. It is important to follow proper preventive measures such as wearing masks, practicing good hygiene, and maintaining social distancing to reduce the risk of contracting the virus.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Drinking more water will flush away the virus.  

    • A.

      Definitely Yes, water is always the solution

    • B.

      No, virus can’t be flushed away

    • C.

      Not sure, though drinking water is good

    • D.

      This information is totally wrong

    Correct Answer
    D. This information is totally wrong
    Explanation
    The statement "Drinking more water will flush away the virus" is incorrect. While staying hydrated is important for overall health, drinking water alone cannot flush away a virus from the body. Viruses are typically fought off by the immune system, and specific antiviral treatments may be necessary in some cases.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Warm weather can kill the virus.

    • A.

      Yes, sunlight can burn the virus

    • B.

      No, it’s hypothetical

    • C.

      Maybe, virus can’t handle too much warmth

    • D.

      Is it even possible?

    Correct Answer
    B. No, it’s hypothetical
    Explanation
    The answer "No, it's hypothetical" suggests that the statement "Warm weather can kill the virus" is not based on concrete evidence or scientific research. It implies that there is no conclusive proof that warm weather has the ability to kill the virus.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Coronavirus can be spread through mosquito bites.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Coronavirus is primarily spread through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks, or breathes. It is not known to be transmitted through mosquito bites. Mosquitoes are known to transmit diseases such as dengue, malaria, and Zika virus, but there is no evidence to suggest that they can transmit the coronavirus. Therefore, the statement that coronavirus can be spread through mosquito bites is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Using alcohol-based sanitizer can protect you from coronavirus.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Alcohol-based sanitizers have been proven to effectively kill many types of viruses, including coronaviruses. The high alcohol content in these sanitizers helps to break down the virus's outer protective layer, rendering it inactive and unable to infect a person. Therefore, using alcohol-based sanitizers can indeed protect you from contracting the coronavirus, as long as you use it properly and in conjunction with other preventive measures such as wearing masks and practicing good hand hygiene.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Spraying alcohol or bleach on your body will never let the virus come in.

    • A.

      Yes, this is a great idea

    • B.

      No, it is not possible

    • C.

      Maybe, let me check

    • D.

      Don’t know much

    Correct Answer
    B. No, it is not possible
    Explanation
    Spraying alcohol or bleach on your body will not prevent the virus from entering your body. The virus primarily enters the body through the respiratory system, not through the skin. Additionally, spraying alcohol or bleach on your body can be harmful and cause skin irritation or other adverse reactions. It is important to follow proper hygiene practices such as washing hands regularly with soap and water, wearing masks, and practicing social distancing to prevent the spread of the virus.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Antibiotics can kill the virus.

    • A.

      No, it only kills bacteria

    • B.

      Yes, antibiotics can kill the virus

    • C.

      Can't say

    • D.

      Don't know much

    Correct Answer
    A. No, it only kills bacteria
    Explanation
    Antibiotics are medications that are specifically designed to kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria. They work by targeting the unique characteristics of bacterial cells, such as their cell walls or metabolic processes. However, antibiotics are not effective against viruses because viruses have a different structure and replication process compared to bacteria. Therefore, antibiotics cannot kill viruses.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Everyone with Coronavirus dies

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Everyone with Coronavirus dies" is false. While it is true that the coronavirus can be fatal, not everyone who contracts the virus will die from it. The majority of people who get infected experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without any complications. However, certain groups, such as the elderly or those with pre-existing health conditions, are at a higher risk of developing severe illness or dying from the virus. Therefore, it is important to take precautions, follow guidelines, and seek medical care if needed to reduce the risk of severe outcomes.
