Local Corona Myths and Facts Surrounding Saudi Arabia
Just like the above ones, there are lots of misconceptions about Coronavirus surrounding the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Despite being a hot territory, the numbers of Corona cases are still increasing in the State. So the hot climate myth of Coronavirus readily proves wrong here.
Like the Saudi males, the numbers of Corona infected women are also recorded despite being in the full-face veil (purdah).
Here is the urgent need of busting the local ‘’Saudi’’ misconceptions and the facts about the COVID-19 that you must get to know. These are as follows
5 times Ablution is enough protection against COVID 19
This is utterly false. 5 times ablution is not the same as washing your hands properly for 20secs. In Ablution you just rinse your hands 3 times. For Corona protection, you need to wash your hands after every hour. Within the 5 times prayers, there is a gap of more than one hour. So ablution is not enough for Corona protection.
Niqab (full Veil) works as a Mask for Corona Protection
No, this is not true. If the coughing or sneezing happens you have to cover your mouth with the proper mask to save yourself or others from the bacterial or viral infections.
The Abaya decreases the chances of the virus catching on the body
No this is false. An Abaya wearing woman can also be carrier of the Corona germ if she touches an infected outside thing. Since the virus enters through touching no matter what you are wearing.
Having Corona means a Death Sentence
No, not at all. As per WHO, out of 207, 855 cases worldwide, 8,648 are confirmed deaths from this virus. So the death toll is very less. Hence a huge infected majority with a good immune system gets fully recovered after fighting this harming virus.
Corona can be transmitted from Pets
No. If your pet doesn’t go outside your house, you are safe from it. However, you must keep your pet clean and in the house during these difficult days.
