Reporter: Corey Lazar
Published: Updated:

A lot of new myths are spreading around about the coronavirus and we want to help straighten out what is true and what is not.

First myth: If you have coronavirus you will know

Not necessarily —COVID-19 causes a range of symptoms like the flu and common cold.

Second myth: Vitamin C supplements will stop you from catching COVID-19.

False—Researchers don’t have evidence of the claim yet

Third myth: 5G wireless services are making the pandemic worse.

False— There’s no evidence cellphones cause health problems like cancer. Research shows radio frequency waves from cell phones don’t have enough energy to damage DNA or heat body tissues.
