Vigilance over anti-measles bracelet advertised on networks

As parents are concerned over thousand of infections and deaths due to measles, dishonest people advertised a bracelet to fight the disease.

Taking advantage of parents’ worry about the disease, dubious people posted an advertisement on social networks that a bracelet made in Japan can prevent measles for children.

After studying the bracelet, the Ministry of Health has issued a warning people about the bracelet as the product is without clear origin and information. Moreover, people should be vigilant as there have not been tests carried out by a legal department.

Worse, the bracelet contains Chlorine dioxide- a powerful disinfectant for industrial air treatment that could pose a risk to human's health, said Professor Nguyen Hoai Chau from Vietnam Academy of  Science and Technology.
