Is hydrogen peroxide effective against the corona virus?

In summary, while hydrogen peroxide is a common household disinfectant, there is currently no scientific evidence to support its effectiveness against the corona virus. It should not be used as a hand sanitizer or on skin for extended periods of time. If used as a disinfectant, it should be diluted and applied according to product instructions. However, it can be harmful if not used properly and there are other household products that have been proven to be effective against the virus. These include bleach, alcohol-based cleaners, and certain types of EPA-registered disinfectants. It is important to always follow product instructions to ensure their effectiveness.

Is hydrogen peroxide effective against the corona virus??
If oxygen is effective against bacteria virus and cancer why isn't it used against coved-19? DMSO is known to bond with certain substances and could carry HP into the blood stream and kill off COVID-19.

If you spray peroxide on a surface, yes it can kill coronavirus.
If you inject it into your bloodstream, it can kill you.
Bad idea.
