In the following 2021 study it is shown that just using AgNPs as a mouth rinse and nasal rinse by health workers is very effective at significantly reducing the incidence of Covid-19 :
Here is an important quote from this study:
>>> ' We present a prospective randomized study of 231 participants that was carried out for 9 weeks (during the declaration of a pandemic). The "experimental" group was instructed to do mouthwash and nose rinse with the AgNPs solution; the "control" group was instructed to do mouthwashes and nose rinse in a conventional way. The incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection was significantly lower in the "experimental" group (two participants of 114, 1.8%) compared to the "control" group (thirty-three participants of 117, 28.2%), with an 84.8% efficiency. We conclude that the mouth and nasal rinse with AgNPs helps in the prevention of SARS-CoV-2 infection in health personnel who are exposed to patients diagnosed with COVID-19. ' <<<
This adds further confirmation to the idea of the following study which clearly showed AgNPs to be a potent neutralizer of the SARS-Cov-2 virus:
Here is a relevant quote from this study :
>>> ' We evaluated a plethora of AgNPs of different sizes and concentration and observed that particles of diameter around 10 nm were effective in inhibiting extracellular SARS-CoV-2 at concentrations ranging between 1 and 10 ppm while cytotoxic effect was observed at concentrations of 20 ppm and above. Luciferase-based pseudovirus entry assay revealed that AgNPs potently inhibited viral entry step via disrupting viral integrity. ' <<<
A little more information on the use of AgNPs for Covid-19 :
I use 20 ppm AgNPs from my big bottle and I fill up a two ounce spray bottle that I carry in my pocket. I use this bottle to sanitize surfaces such as restaurant table tops, door handles, restroom faucets, chair handles in waiting rooms, my hands, face etc. Most importantly I use this spray inhaled into each nostril as I breathe in through that nostril and I also spray it directly into my mouth whenever I feel I am in an area where I may be exposed to Covid-19. The first study confirms that this may be a very effective option to help prevent getting Covid-19.
Given the extremely rapid rate of infection of the Omicron variant, this seems like timely information, especially if you happen to be planning a night out to celebrate the new year.
On a related note, yesterday set the highest number of new Covid-19 cases per day at over 475,000 new cases. Today, which is still counting with 8 hours remaining has cleanly broken that record with 542,000 new cases . This has eclipsed the high of last January 8th, set at 306,307. Yes, I will be refilling my spray bottle and using it freely and frequently.
Update : It looks like today completed at 572,029 new cases today.
