Hello Hardika,


Thank you for the question.

Need to be clarified, is the intended hot water drunk, watered, or what is its use?


So far, there has been no research that specifically proves that hot water can prevent Corona disease (COVID-19, a disease caused by a new Corona virus infection). However, drinking plenty of warm water (not hot water, not cold water) can help increase the humidity of the throat and airway, thereby also minimizing the symptoms of inflammation in the area. This inflammation is often one of the symptoms experienced by sufferers of Corona, which is characterized by itching, lumps, pain, pain, until shortness of breath. Not only that, sufferers of Corona also often have a fever, which makes it excessive sweating. With enough drinking, the body fluids lost due to excessive sweating will be replaced, and your body will feel more comfortable. According to various literature, adequate drinking intake also plays a role in increasing endurance so as to minimize your risk of being infected with viruses (including the new Corona virus).


If what you mean is to flush or spray hot water to an area that may be contaminated with Corona virus, then this has not been much investigated for its truth. So far, the recommended method for WHO to get rid of viruses from susceptible objects is by washing them with soap and running water, or spraying them with disinfectant solutions containing more than 60% alcohol.


Therefore, you should be more careful in filtering information that is circulating today.


I hope this helps.
