Following rumors of the effectiveness of alcohol in the treatment of coronavirus, people in Iran began to consume counterfeit alcohol, which resulted in poisoning to the point that by the evening of Tuesday, March 11, 370 people were hospitalized due to alcohol poisoning. They referred to medical centers. One needs to go to the hospital emergency room as soon as the signs of alcohol poisoning are noticed. In Iran, many people go to medical centers too late and risk their lives for fear of being arrested or questioned by the police, while they should know that the goal of doctors is only to help the patient and save their life. Asking people to adhere to preventive health principles and not fall into the trap of misconceptions and rumors, we emphasize that avoiding unnecessary traffic in cities is still the best and safest way to deal with COVID-19.
