Social Media and the Coronavirus

“Social media are interactive computer-mediated technologies that facilitate the creation or sharing of information, ideas, career interests and other forms of expression via virtual communities and networks.” ——Wikipedia

This is absolute bullshit…

If it was meant to be humorous, it isn’t close to being funny….

If it is meant to provide some sort on wisdom or insight, it doesn’t do anything more than give comfort to those who are hopelessly ignorant and those who are too stupid to know any better…

In any case, this nonsense should not be shared or bandied about as though it has some legitimacy or efficacy….

In other words, this kind of crap is better kept to one’s self….

Consider this:

According to the message, the coronavirus cannot withstand temperatures in excess of 27 degrees ( no indication of whether this is Fahrenheit or Centigrade in the message)….

Since 32° Fahrenheit is freezing, the correct assumption is that the author’s point of reference is Centigrade….

The average human body temperature is 37° Centigrade, a full 10 degrees HIGHER than the point beyond which coronavirus can survive, according to this misinformation being that is being transmitted as though it has some meaningful medicinal value.

You don’t need to be a doctor, all you need is some common sense and some basic or common knowledge to know that this message is little more than homespun medical quackery and typical social media garbage masquerading as fact or truth….

If you see anything like this DON’T SHARE IT….
