Scientists found a drug that kills coronavirus in a few seconds

(ORDO NEWS) — Some toothpastes containing tin and zinc were able to neutralize the coronavirus by 99.9% in two minutes.

Oral care products can reduce the spread of SARS-CoV-2, according to research. Also, American scientists came to the conclusion that mouth rinses with cetylpyridinium chloride also counteract the virus. This tool can neutralize the virus in 30 seconds.

“The results show that some toothpastes and mouthwashes can help reduce the spread of SARS-CoV-2 <…> by temporarily reducing the amount of virus in the mouth,” the British Dental Journal said.

The results of the study were confirmed by tests involving 260 patients infected with coronavirus, RIA Novosti reports.
