Multiple posts on Facebook claim that Vietnam has recorded no deaths from Covid-19 due to widespread consumption of hot lemon tea in the population. The claim is false: as of February 22, 2021, Vietnam has recorded 35 coronavirus deaths. Health experts said there is "no evidence" that hot lemon tea is an effective Covid-19 treatment.
