WHO clarifies: Drinking alcoholic beverages does not help fight coronavirus

World Health Organization (WHO) warned people Tuesday not to believe versions that drinking strong alcoholic beverages will help combat coronavirus COVID-19.

The agency’s European office said “fear and misinformation have spawned a dangerous myth that high-concentration alcohol consumption can kill the virus that causes COVID-19. It does not.”

He warned that alcohol consumption always represents a health risk, especially if it is highly concentrated or adulterated with methanol, because that can cause death.

However, none of these countries that follow the North American country reaches 200,000, while the United States exceeds 500,000.
