Rumor: The new coronavirus can be killed when spraying ethanol or chlorine over the whole body.

Fact:

Spraying ethanol or chlorine all over the body does not kill viruses that have already entered into the body. Instead, it may be harmful to spray such substances over clothing or mucous membranes (eyes, mouth). Ethanol and chlorine may be useful for the surface disinfection of various objects, but people should follow recommendations when using them.
