Beware Of Hand Sanitizers: The coronavirus, which began in December last year as a mysterious infection in the city of Wuhan, China, has engulfed the entire world. Six months have passed since the first case of the corona, and scientists around the world are still working day and night to find a vaccine and cure for this rapidly spreading disease.
Because there is neither vaccine nor cure for this disease, Covid-19 is proving fatal in many cases. People have no means other than to take precautions to avoid this. The WHO also issued some guidelines to prevent this. According to this, washing hands several times a day, using face masks, hand sanitizers when going out, maintaining physical distance from people, and staying at home as much as possible.
Deadly Experiments with Hand Sanitizer
According to recent reports, three people have died and a human eye has been lighted by drinking hand sanitizer in the US and Mexico. According to health officials, three people died due to poisonous methanol. Apart from these, three more people are fighting for their lives. According to Mexico’s Department of Health, the three men drank hand sanitizer, which included methanol.
Hand sanitizer disadvantages
Hand sanitizers contain a poisonous substance called methanol, which can cause a number of dangerous side-effects. Such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, damage to the nervous system, blurred vision, losing eye light, coma, and even death. Sometimes a methanol-containing sanitizer on hand can also prove to be dangerous. So before taking any hand sanitizer, you must read about its ingredients.
What to do will be right
It is important to understand that it is better than hand sanitizer to wash hands several times a day with water and soap for at least 20 seconds. Hand sanitizers should be used only when clean water or soap is not available to wash hands. Also, while purchasing hand sanitizer, check its expiry date and alcohol level (at least 60 percent).
