Does drinking alcohol prevent coronavirus disease (COVID-19)?
Drinking alcohol does not prevent or treat coronavirus infection and may impair immune function. While hand sanitizers containing 60-95% ethyl alcohol can help destroy the coronavirus on surfaces, drinking alcohol—including beverages with high percentages of alcohol—offers no protection from the virus.
How physical distancing reduces the consumption of alcohol in the time of COVID-19?
To slow down the spread of the virus, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends physical distancing of at least one meter from sick people as a protective measure. Bars, casinos, night clubs, restaurants and other places where people gather to consume alcohol (including in the home) increase the risk of transmission of the virus. Physical distancing therefore reduces the availability of alcohol, so it presents a great opportunity to reduce your drinking and become healthier.
What percentage of alcohol do you need to kill the coronavirus on surfaces?
You can dilute alcohol with water (or aloe vera to make hand sanitizer) but be sure to keep an alcohol concentration of around 70% to kill coronaviruses. Pure (96%) alcohol evaporates too quickly for such use.
