    2. FALSE

    COVID-19 infects people of all ages, including children. However older people and individuals living with chronic conditions appear to be more vulnerable to becoming seriously ill with the virus.

  5. 5 You can get a face mask exemption card so you don’t need to wear a mask.

    1. TRUE
    2. FALSE
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    FALSE

  6. 6 One infected person infects about 2.5 other people.

    1. TRUE
    2. FALSE
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    TRUE

    The current estimate is that one infected person infects about 2.5 others; they in turn infect 2.5 others each. So very quickly, that one person results in 10 cases in the community – and that continues. Estimates suggest that if 100 people become infected, five will need to be hospitalized.

  7. 7 Hand sanitizer doesn’t kill coronavirus because it’s antibacterial, not antiviral.

    1. TRUE
    2. FALSE
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    FALSE

    Hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol content, per the CDC) does kill the coronavirus. The alcohol disrupts RNA molecules in the virus, preventing it from making copies of itself. You can make your own hand sanitizer at home. Keep in mind, hand sanitizer is the second-best way to keep your hands germ-free. The best way is properly washing your hands with soap and water.

  8. 8 A loss of smell or taste is a symptom of COVID-19.

    1. TRUE
    2. FALSE
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    TRUE

    A loss of smell or taste may be a symptom of COVID-19; however, research is still ongoing and the predominant symptoms remain fever, cough and shortness of breath.

  9. 9 Once you are infected with COVID-19, you build an immunity and cannot get reinfected.

    1. TRUE
    2. FALSE
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    FALSE

    The truth is the science is inconclusive as of now whether you can be reinfected with COVID-19. While there are reports of patients reporting being infected twice, some say what might look like reinfection from a new exposure to the virus is more likely to be a smoldering first infection. Only time will tell, but as of now the jury is out on if you can be reinfected with COVID-19.

  10. 10 Hydroxychloroquine has proven to be affective in treating COVID-19.

    1. TRUE
    2. FALSE
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    FALSE

    Studies show hydroxychloroquine does not have clinical benefits in treating COVID-19.

    Current data shows that this drug does not reduce deaths among hospitalised COVID-19 patients, nor help people with moderate disease.(link)

  11. 11 You should NOT wear a mask when running.

    1. TRUE
    2. FALSE
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    TRUE

    Sweat can make the mask become wet more quickly which makes it difficult to breathe and promotes the growth of microorganisms. The important preventive measure during exercise is to maintain physical distance of at least one meter from others. (link)
