Dozens of researchers the world over have urged the use of iodine against COVID-19 transmission.
A small sampling here:
R.H. Verheesen, MD (rheumatology doctor at Maxima MC, Eindhoven, Holland)
During the Asian flu in 1957 the use of iodine seemed to prevent the development of influenza. In the untreated group 14% developed influenza, 2.8% in the treated group (an 80% better result). Starting iodine after 3 days of illness reduced the number of cases significantly after only two days of treatment. Iodine could support the innate immune system in fighting both bacterial and viral infections. Iodine is a crucial element in the optimal functioning of the innate immune system and could be the magic bullet for fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, in both a curative and preventive way. Iodine has very limited side effects and fast uptake in oral supplementation. Further, iodine deficiency affects 1/3rd of the world population.
K.K. Hui (Hong Kong Acad of Medicine; Hong Kong Medical Journal, May 2020)
Povidone-iodine, a candidate for nasal spray and oral rinse, has displayed viricidal effects on severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in vitro after 30 to 60 seconds of exposure, even at concentrations as low as 0.45%. International dental and endodontics associations have suggested povidone-iodine as a preprocedural mouth-rinse to limit the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Adverse effects are infrequent and occur primarily after long-term use (e.g. >1 year). Povidone- iodine mouth-rinse or oral/nasal spray can reduce SARS-CoV-2 viral load in the upper respiratory tract, hampering transmission when used in conjunction with existing infection control or public health measures. Povidone-iodine possesses potential for use as chemoprophylaxis to synergistically suppress SARS-CoV-2 transmission.
Dr. Eisha Imran, et al., (Dept. of Dental Materials; Islamic International Dental College in the Journal of European Dentistry, 2020). Key Recommendation by the American Dental Association.
Earlier in June 2020, Martínez Lamas et al conducted an in vivo investigation which aimed to determine the influence of PVP-I on COVID-19 positive patients. They evaluated and compared the viral loads through polymerase chain reaction testing before and after PVP-I mouth rinse. The results signified a decline in the viral load of the saliva of these COVID-19 patients after 1-minute use of PVP-I and the effects persisted for 3 hours.
This study supports the fact that PVP-I can significantly aid in reducing the viral load of COVID-19patients. The American Dental Association (ADA) advised pre-procedural utilization of 0.2%PVP-I to reduce transmission. We propose and urge the dental staff for pre-procedural use of 0.2% PVP-I mouthwashes for 30 seconds. A small quantity of the mouthwash needs to be introduced into the mouth for 30 seconds, and gargles for further 30 seconds are recommended in the throat and spit after 1 minute.
