Viagra can cure COVID-19
Viagra can cure COVID-19 is a claim purported to be fact-checked in an Associated Press article. The article fails at demonstrating an absence of positive effect of Viagra on some of the respiratory symptoms of COVID-19, and some early studies appear to show a potentially helpful effect. Therefore, the claim remains possible with some support.
|Statement of the claim||Viagra can cure COVID-19|
|Level of certainty||Possible with some support|
|Counterclaim||Viagra has no helpful effect on COVID-19|
