In the midst Covid-19 pandemic, a group of medical students have came up with a brilliant imitative titled MoreViralThanTheVirus. This movement is represented by youths in over 100 countries.
The Malaysian chapter of this initiative has their own social media handle, called MoreViralThanTheVirus Malaysia. They aim to educate the public about the myths and facts surrounding Covid-19. This group of medical students want to help to support the frontliners and government to emphasize the measures to stay safe.
The group has also launched their first project, Project #ViralMyths showcasing the common myths our community has blindly believed without scientific evidence and the explanations behind it.

Myths: Ability to hold breath for 10 seconds = No COVID-19 REALITY: There are several symptoms of COVID-19 with some being more severe than others. You cannot confirm it with unprecedented breathing exercises as this could even be dangerous. Thus, the best way to confirm whether or not you have been infected with the virus is by going for a laboratory test. For more information, head on to WHO’s website: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public/myth-busters #ViralMyths
The team is also currently in the making of a video project entitled #WhyWeStayAtHome which sees different people across Malaysia answer the burning question, “Why are we staying at home?”
This is in addition to a number of upcoming projects to continue spreading awareness on this invisible enemy.
