Does the Pfizer vaccine prevent infection or transmission?
So far, what is known about the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines is that they prevent people from getting very sick with the virus, but it may not prevent someone from becoming infected with COVID-19. Early phases of vaccine research are only designed to test efficacy and safety.
Does consuming alcohol kill Covid-19?
Consuming alcohol will not destroy the virus, and its consumption is likely to increase the health risks if a person becomes infected with the virus. Alcohol (at a concentration of at least 60% by volume) works as a disinfectant on your skin, but it has no such effect within your system when ingested.
Can COVID-19 be transmitted through feces or urine?
SARS-CoV-2 RNA has also been detected in other biological samples, including the urine and feces of some patients. One study found viable SARS-CoV-2 in the urine of one patient. Three studies have cultured SARS-CoV-2 from stool specimens. To date, however, there have been no published reports of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 through feces or urine.
Can the coronavirus disease spread through sewage?
