So unnecessarily alarmist. I actually started getting forwards of this as “advice” and people spreading the word through WhatsApp and other platforms at least 10 times last week. I was already like “okay guys seriously”... & then I see Tina Knowles post
Thank you for pointing this out. I get the fear about #coronavirus. But blatant misinformation helps no one.
Yes, it’s important to stay hydrated.
No, hydration does not prevent viral spread. Handwashing, alcohol based sanitizers and coughing/sneezing into your sleeve does.
Our Physical Therapists love seeing patients at the office. Many injuries and conditions benefit from physical therapy either as a first course of treatment or as a next step following surgery or another procedure. However, our Physical Therapists can also provide patients with exercises and other things they can do at home. Take a scroll through our feed to see some exercises you can do at home!
I don’t know where to start. There are many inaccuracies in the posted note and the tone is unnecessarily alarmist. PS - I have never prescribed throat lubrication or avoidance of spicy/fatty foods for an viral respiratory infection....
What’s particularily concerning is she is practicing it herself & enabling the inaccurate advice, I don’t even want to know how many people are sipping through waters & avoiding spice right not to ensure the coronavirus doesn’t penetrate their dried throats/mouths. pic.twitter.com/82iK7FQ88i
Agreed - she even goes as far as practicing it herself (her caption for the photo) it’s concerning bc of the influence she holds and how many people are going to panic and follow this.pic.twitter.com/WuquGjCn8n
