Last year by this time, our beloved motherland Ghana was shut down in March. A popular myth that swept across the entire country had it that, strands of human hair found between pages of the holy book are the cure to the novel virus, not only that, rumors also about the coronavirus and the country’s response was spread through social media and mobile apps. These messages manipulated public opinion, created false narratives and promoted dangerous practices, or all three. They were spread by modern-day snake oil salesmen, religious fanatics and online hucksters using false advertisement and plagiarism to make money off of ad sales.

According to the said myth or rumor, "the cure for COVID-19 is to find a hair inside a bible, put it in a glass of water and drink it"

Let's take time to out to look at the background of the myth


Background: 

Documented received an audio message via WhatsApp where a man says that in Mosquitia a newborn baby had devised a cure for the new coronavirus and that people should look for a piece of hair inside all bibles, put it in a glass of water and then drink it.

Due to the fact the audio file was distributed on WhatsApp, it was hard to track back its creation.It started in mid-March, reaching its peak after the first week of April.

Here in Ghana, whilst some say a little girl fell unconscious after the National Fasting and Prayer day which was held on Wednesday, March 25, others also say the prophecy is sourced from a prophet.

The direction of the prophecy is to find a strand of human hair in the middle of pages in the bible, put it in water and drink it.

hair in bible myth

This took social media by storm and many users went on the mission to find the miracle hair...

Those who took the water that contained hair, was it able to immunize or cure you against the virus?
