A message is circulating on WhatsApp attributed to someone who identifies himself as Adrian Flores and claims to be an infectologist, listing a number of foods that are supposed to treat covid-19 in case of infection. In particular, he talks about products that are “alkaline above the acidic level of the virus”, whose pH level “varies from 5.5 to 8.5”. This is FALSE. Consuming food above the acidic level of the virus has no proven effect on the virus.
