    Let’s just see what happens when the real testing begins in Venice. As a result of Bonin’s leadership the National Guard will have to be deployed to clean up the mess.

    This information is a hoax There is no self-test for the coronavirus.


    1. Self-Diagnosis
    Fake Claim: “A simple self-check that we can do every morning. Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort stiffness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicates no infection. In critical time, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air.”

    Fact Check: As news of the COVID-19 spreads, it’s natural for some people to worry that they may have already contracted the virus: the symptoms may mimic the seasonal flu or a bad cold. Unfortunately, the internet and social media are rife with inaccurate or false information on how to tell if you have COVID-19, the name for the disease caused by the new coronavirus discovered in China.

    Bogus claims on Facebook and Twitter say a simple test is to hold your breath for 10 seconds when you get up in the morning. If there’s no coughing, you are not infected.

    This “test” is useless. People can have coronavirus and be asymptomatic, and they can still “shed” the virus and infect others. The main coronavirus symptoms are fever, cough and shortness of breath: symptoms shared by other illnesses. The same social media post wrongly claims that a “wet” cough with sputum is a symptom of a common cold or another illness other than coronavirus.
