Video misleadingly purports to show Covid-19 prevention tips from 'Thai hospital dean'

A video has been viewed thousands of times in multiple Facebook posts alongside a claim it shows the dean of a Thai hospital giving Covid-19 prevention tips, including the importance of boosting your immune system. The claim is misleading: the woman in the misleading video is not a Thai hospital dean. Health experts told AFP that having a healthy immune system does not entirely preclude the possibility that someone will develop Covid-19 symptoms.
