With the constant rise in COVID19 positive cases everyday, it’s understandable why people are trying to keep themselves updated with the latest information. Even though the fastest way of keeping up with the latest news is the Internet, not all of it is authentic. The internet is filled with random websites that stock up on tons of misinformation.
Scammers are also using this time to their advantage by selling fake products like fake masks and sanitizers. To protect yourself against such scammers, these are the things that you should instantly stop searching on the world wide web.
Coronavirus Alert : 5 Things About COVID19 That You Must Stop Looking For Online
1) Don’t search for apps to navigate the spread of coronavirus
If you really want to keep track of all the areas that are most affected, opt for the official website. Just keep in mind that there’s no such dedicated app that can do so. You might even end up downloading ransomware.
2) Refrain from searching for coronavirus related websites as it can be harmful
Choose authentic platforms like official website of World Health Organization or other government websites. Non official and fake websites can even steal your personal information.
3) Avoid searching for coronavirus testing kits as they are unauthorised and most probably fake
You have to understand that there is a reason why the government has approved only a few government and private hospitals to run the test for coronavirus. The test is complex and discovering the virus is a hard deal. So all the testing kits that claim to detect the coronavirus are just feeding on people’s fear to mint money.
4) Avoid searching for symptoms of coronavirus online
Reading newspaper and watching ads on television are good enough ways to get to know the symptoms of COVID19. However, if you lack access to these, the other best thing to do is seeking information from official website of World Health Organization.
5) Stop searching for coronavirus vaccinations and medicines online
As of now, no medicine or vaccine to treat COVID19 have been discovered yet. We strongly suggest that you stop searching for the same on the internet.
