Mouthwashes could reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission

From the August 10 2020 Medicalxpress article



“The use of mouthwashes that are effective against Sars-Cov-2 could…help to reduce the viral load and possibly the risk of coronavirus transmission over the short term. This could be useful, for example, prior to dental treatments. However, mouth rinses are not suitable for treating Covid-19 infections or protecting yourself against catching the virus.”

Go to the PDF, table 1 to see the effectiveness of 8 different mouthwashes available at stores along with the full text of the scientific article.
