The “Indian Times” Journal: Gargling With Liquid Mask Breaks the Chain of Infection
Oct 29, 2020
High points of the article by Dr. K. K. Aggarwal.
COVID-19, the infection created by SARS-CoV-2, has caused over 37 million cases and 1 million deaths
The main transmission route is respiratory droplets from an infected person’s mouth and nose.
The peak of transmissibility usually occurs by the 5th day of infection.
About Liquid Mask – our iodine-based transmission killer
Povidone-Iodine – our “Liquid Mask” product, according to Dr. Aggarwal – “has been shown to rapidly inactivate the SARS, MERS and SARS-CoV-2 viruses.” “Rapidly” means in about 15 seconds.
According to Dr. Aggarwal, “The universal spectrum of antimicrobial activity, faster onset of action, more persistent effect and lack of selection of bacterial resistance are features which give PVP-I an edge over other available
Reducing the amount of virus at this initial stage of infection might positively influence the course of the disease. Gargling with an antiseptic such as PVP-I may help to break the chain of infection by reducing the viral load in the throat and decreasing the amount of virus released in droplets, which is why it should also be recommended as a preventive measure alongside hand hygiene, masking and physical distancing.“
Below are a list of references, all of which pertain to the statements and guidance expressed in this article. Hundreds of physicians, dentists and oral surgeons have written articles and editorial letters, urging their colleagues in medicine to have patients gargle or spray throat and nose with PVP-I – in short, with our Liquid Mask product.
