The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are dry cough, tiredness and fever. The best way to confirm if you have  the virus producing COVID-19 disease is with a laboratory test.

Frequent or excessive alcohol consumption can increase your risk of health problems.

6. Can spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body kill the new coronavirus?

No. Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body.
