Why You CANNOT and Will NEVER "Catch" Coronavirus

Facts Check Verdict: False

News Verification: The video is of Tom Barnett, who unsuccessfully ran for a seat in the 2019 federal election in Australia.

In the video, Barnett can be seen telling that one cannot catch the virus and go ahead asking people to go outside while ignoring social distancing rules and washing their hands set by the government to stop the spread of the virus around Australia.

He says, His logic is that a virus is a not alive organism, and because it's not a live organism, The only way that you can catch a virus is by having it injected into your bloodstream. it cannot be contagious. For instance, look at hepatitis. If it were contagious, how come it's just affecting the liver and not the brain and not the heart, and if it's confined to one organ in your body, do you really think it can go between two people, let alone two species? It's just complete nonsense.

Youtube and Facebook have removed a video posted by an Australian anti-vaxxer, in which he downplayed the severity of coronavirus in Australia. The footage was online and was viewed more than 200,000 times on YouTube before they took action.

Doctors are slamming anti-vaxxers’ advice not to self-isolate or follow social distancing measures as “dangerous and possibly illegal” after one Byron Shire anti-vaxxer claimed it was “impossible” to catch a virus.

As of April 4, 2020, coronavirus is the cause of more than 60,000 deaths around the world.
