Drinking alcohol CAN NOT protect you from coronavirus?
Dr KK Aggarwal

Alcohol drinking can neither protect a person from coronavirus nor it can kill the deadly virus.
Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body. On the contrary spraying such substances can be harmful to clothes or eyes and mouth.
Both alcohol and chlorine can be useful to disinfect surfaces, but they need to be used under appropriate recommendations.
Cleaning your hands frequently with alcohol-based hand rub or washing them with soap and water can protect yourself against the deadly virus.
