In many cities in China, today is the first working day after an extended vacation, with many working from home because of coronavirus.

According to the latest information, a hospital has been opened in Wuhan whose construction began in late January, while there are not enough masks in Beijing. Officials have acknowledged there have been omissions in response to the crisis, but the number of people who have been cured exceeds the number of deaths.

More than 630 people have been discharged from hospitals across China. Currently, close to 24,000 are infected while just under 500 have died.

However, what is more worrying than the virus itself is the propaganda, and the fact that the whole world is afraid, while the entire Chinese nation of 1.4 billion people is being stigmatized because of this virus.

Take a look at the most common myths, but also the facts that should guide you:
