We've seen numerous people claiming that Coronavirus can be kept away through garlic and/or onions.

This isn’t true.

Covid-19, also known as novel-Coronavirus, can enter your body even if you eat lots of garlic or onions.

In fact the World Health Organisation specifically says it will not protect you.

We get it. You love eating onions and garlic. So do we. We love them. Both foods are healthy and have anti-microbial properties, but they won’t kill Covid-19.

This claim has not been backed by one scientist.
