Can drinking alcohol cure or prevent COVID-19?
FACT: Drinking alcohol doesn’t cure or prevent COVID-19. In fact, drinking alcohol can weaken your immune system. It’s recommended that adults limit their alcohol intake to stay healthy.
Drinking high strength ethanol, as found in some cleaning products or hand sanitizers, can be very dangerous. You must not consume these products. They will not protect you from COVID-19 and instead drinking these products could cause disability or death.
