1. More Nasal Sprays Are in Development
It’s not all about the nasal spray, but having clean nasal passages may reduce viral infections as well. That’s why doctor Gustavo Ferrer, from Aventura Hospital and Medical Center in Aventura, Florida, who was part of the teams behind both studies, recommends cleaning your nostrils regularly.
“Studies show that regular nasal cleansing may help reduce viral infections, including from the SARS-CoV-2 virus,” said Ferrer. Basically, Ferrer explains that cleansing the nose means less virus, and it also means less risk of infection.
That’s why, in addition to the already mentioned Xlear Sinus Care nasal spray, there are other nasal sprays being developed to help fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
In the UK, a team of scientists is working on a COVID-blocking nose spray that uses an antiviral agent and a thickening solution that traps the COVID virus and stops it from spreading across your body.
