NATIONWIDE — Another warning is coming from the World Health Organization.
It wants people to understand that drinking alcohol will not kill the coronavirus. WHO says drinking while sick just makes you more sick.
Although alcohol of certain strengths can kill the virus on surfaces, it doesn’t work the same way inside your body. Consuming alcohol actually weakens your immune system and gives the virus a leg up.
The organization is now encouraging governments to enforce measures to limit alcohol consumption. That may not be realistic advice for everyone but the easier you go, the healthier you’ll be.
