A woman in China has posted an article asking health professionals if baijiu and an air humidifier can fend of the coronavirus.
The poster is asking health professionals the following question after outlining her method in the article below: Is this method feasible? Experts/professionals, kindly criticize and correct if the method is inappropriate.
The post demonstrates how fearful and desperate many people must be feeling in China, my sympathy and thoughts are with those affected.
Title of the original posters article: This time I am serious! Baijiu + air humidifier to fend off new Coronavirus
My idea is that the new Coronavirus is vulnerable to alcohol, so spreading alcohol throughout a narrow space can fend off the virus.
The tools are simple, a bottle of baijiu, an air humidifier.
I am sure you know what happen next?
Why don’t I use medicinal alcohol? Because medicinal alcohol contains impurities such as methanol and formaldehyde, therefore inhaling this type of alcohol could cause harm to the human body.
The correct choice of baijiu should be strong pure grain liquor with at least 50 % alcohol content or more. Do not choose the blended baijiu.
Regarding the harm of inhaling alcohol, after thorough research, it was concluded that inhaling a small amount of alcohol has no effect on the human body, and an excessive amount is likely to cause alcohol intoxication.
Does this idea work? I did the experiments myself.
The test location is in the kitchen, and if there is any problem, I can quickly exhaust and ventilate the area.
Water is mixed with the liquor with 53% alcohol content, for 2 reasons. One, there is insufficient amount of liquor; Two, to prevent alcohol intoxication.
Start the humidifier after adding the alcohol. I found that it emits a strong scent and there is very little mist produced.
After starting the humidifier for a period of time, there is no discomfort.
Is this method feasible? Experts/professionals, kindly criticize and correct if the method is inappropriate.
In an earlier article we posted titled (Fake Rumors That Baijiu Can Kill Coronavirus Spreading On Chinese Social Media) health experts have said that high proof baijiu can not replace medical alcohol for sterilization. At present, there is no specific food that can help to resist the new coronavirus.
