New research has risen over the last few days as to easy and effective ways to kill the coronavirus before it can sicken or kill us. According to a September study published in the Journal of Medical Virology, certain nasal rinses and mouthwashes may provide additional protection against the virus.
"Common over‐the‐counter nasal rinses and mouthwashes/gargles were tested for their ability to inactivate high concentrations of HCoV using contact times of 30 s, 1 min, and 2 min. Reductions in titers were measured by using the tissue culture infectious dose 50 (TCID50) assay. A 1% baby shampoo nasal rinse solution inactivated HCoV greater than 99.9% with a 2‐minute contact time. Several over‐the‐counter mouthwash/gargle products including Listerine and Listerine‐like products were highly effective at inactivating infectious virus with greater than 99.9% even, with a 30‐second contact time," as reported in the study.
