Certain Types of Mouthwashes Shown to Stop COVID-19 Transmission

Using different types of mouthwashes in studies conducted on Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) transmission, researchers at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine made the discovery that 2 different types of mouthwashes may be able to halt the COVID-19 virus from spreading, according to an article from ContagionLive.

Listerine and prescription mouthwash Chlorhexidine were shown to be effective in stopping the virus. 2 other types of mouthwash tested were Betadine and Peroxal. These 2 were shown to be effective in preventing transmission, though not disruption.

Despite these findings, researchers recommend against using only the mouthwash as protection from the virus, and are still waiting on testing in a real-world setting.
