As South Africans brace themselves for the onslaught of Covid-19, it is a good time to fact check the litany of information doing the rounds in between your online gamble real moneysessions.
From an elevated case rate due to the Corona beer virus, to bioweapons and intentional viral infection for economical gain… Misinformation has become one of the unfortunate sideshows of what is already a devastating global pandemic.
Here is a brief synopsis to help you separate facts from fiction, so that you and you family can stay safe and healthy:
Fact Check: Bank Notes are Spreading Covid-19
In the USA, China and even right here in South Africa, it is believed that handling bank notes can drive the contagion. In reality, there is no scientific evidence to either prove or disprove the notion.
What we do know is Chinese banks were ordered to disinfect cash before issuing it to the public. More recently, there has been a noticeable shift to digital payments and paperless transactions… and that is clearly the way to go.
Having said that, it is essential to handle your own credit or debit card during payment processing and ensure you disinfect it thoroughly the moment you get home.
That also means changing your behaviour when you fancy a bit of blackjack, baccarat, video poker, roulette, or slots. Rather than getting your wagers away with real cash at a brick and mortar establishment, we suggest you sign up at Springbok casino and fund your account via one of our remote banking methods with online gamble real money instead.
Fact Check: Garlic, Vitamin C and Regular Hydration Can Cure Coronavirus
Home remedies like eating loads of fresh garlic, drinking water continuously throughout the day and supplementing your diet with vitamin C cannot unfortunately cure coronavirus.
At this point in time, there is no vaccine and no known cure. Treatment is currently limited to dealing with the symptoms of SARS-CoV-2 as and when they arise.
There is of course no harm in shoring up your immune system. That way you can weaponise your body and destroy the virus when you do get infected. Taking supplements like vitamin C, astaxanthin and selenium is a low-cost preventative measure that can pay dividends.
The good news is doctors in the India appear to be having some success treating patients with a combination of swine flu, Ebola fever and malaria medicines. What is even more heartening is that Israeli and German scientists have reportedly begun testing an actual vaccine – although it might only be available to the public in 12 to 18 months.
In the meantime, social distancing, quarantine and self-isolation are your best bet – and that means spending more time reading books, streaming Netflix and playing casino games at Springbok without using online gamble real money… of course!
Fact Check: Coronavirus is a Beer Virus
The contention that covid-19 is caused from drinking Corona beer is absolute nonsense. Although scientists have not isolated exactly which breed or breeds of animal could have potentially transferred the virus to human beings, in the scientific spheres, it is believed that Covid-19 originated from an animal.
The so-called beer coronavirus does not exist. It is simply a figment of a fertile imagination, so feel free to crack open a cold one, load the best ever RTG casino games onto your PC or phone and start building a bankroll of online gamble real money that’s safely stashed away in cyberspace.
Fact Check: White Wine Vinegar Kills SARS-CoV-2
As with commercial disinfectant products like Savlon and Dettol, white wine vinegar – or any other natural disinfectant or antibacterial like tea tree oil – cannot kill SARS-CoV-2. What they can do is help keep surfaces clean so as to reduce the spread of infection.
What is reputed to be more effective when it comes to actually destroying the virus is hydrogen peroxide. The one drawback is that it has to be left on the affected area for at least one minute – and that could lead to the degradation of the surface due to the corrosive nature of the compound.
Although antibacterial and disinfectants will not eradicate the virus, we advise South Africans to clean all the surfaces they are in contact with, especially when sharing space with other people.
Regularly wiping down door handles, kitchen counters, telephones, cell phones, keyboards and dustbin handles with a diluted solution of Dettol, Savlon or vinegar can arrest the spread of the contagion and keep you and your family out of harm’s way.
We know our online and mobile channels at Springbok Casino offer the best remote online gamble real money experience. We urge you, however, not to share your devices with anyone and to keep them properly sanitised at all times.
Fact Check: Heat Destroys the Coronavirus
There is absolutely no truth in the rumours that taking a hot bath or exposing your body to an ultra violet lamp or heat generated by a hand dryer can destroy the virus. There is also no evidence at all that warm or hot weather will stem the infection rate.
In fact, the spread of the virus throughout Africa and other countries such as Malaysia disputes the statement made by US President Donald Trump that the virus will be a thing of the past by April due to the transition into spring.
All we can hope for is the proper containment of the disease – and if that means self-isolating for weeks or even months at a time, so be it. The alternative is too ghastly to imagine.
In the interests of all concerned, it is time to settle in, fire up the engines of Springbok Casino and enjoy online gamble real money casino games that are fun, functional and potentially rewarding.
