Just in case there was any question, snorting cocaine will NOT protect you from the coronavirus. That was the message from French health officials this week. They actually felt the need to issue that very stern warning in a Twitter post.
“No, cocaine does not protect against COVID-19,’ said the country’s Ministry of Solidarity and Health. “It’s an addictive drug that causes serious adverse and harmful effects.”
The warning came after a series of memes and bizarre conspiracy theories began circulating online, with some showing fake news headlines claiming cocaine can kill Covid-19. Just to be clear – it cannot. And while we’re at it, spraying the body with chlorine, bleach or alcohol is also extremely dangerous and will not help you. Apparently that’s something you can also find on the internet that isn’t true.
