Remember POVIDONE-IODINE (PI) (aka Betadine), a simple program & nips COVID virus, all/most respiratory viruses in the nose, mouth, nasopharynx; 1/2 teaspoon of betadine mixed with 1.5 ounces of water
by Paul Alexander
put that in a bulb syringe, stick it up your nose & washout each nostril 2x. Swish and spit orally, twice a day, and when you go outside and return; No swallow; use hydrogen peroxide diluted if no PI
Research suggests that PI or HP will kill most viruses we are in contact with…again, no swallow, and you dilute to taste. swish and spit orally, and Q tip bulb cleaning out nostrils etc. as far as can go.
We have added PI to the early treatment regimen at the top box if you look carefully for in some sense, if this is done routinely, one can argue there may be no need for early treatment and you can effectively stave off COVID and cold virus etc. routinely. Completely. Hydrogen peroxide (and there are oral versions too I have seen at least one) is used by some who find PI too bitter, but remember, no swallow and you dilute it.
This can be purchased OTC. Oral dental surgeons etc. cam forward and informed us they use similar programs before COVID to clean nostrils and mouths as they are inside people mouths daily in surgery and they use this as their own protection. Keeps them safe. We then dug further and studied it and boy, had we known earlier, this would have been out there to help protect more, even before early treatment. It defies logic why public health will not tell people these solutions that saves lives including for vitamin D.
“Can povidone iodine gargle/mouthrinse inactivate SARS-CoV-2 and decrease the risk of nosocomial and community transmission during the COVID-19 pandemic? An evidence-based update

The Coronavirus disease in 2019 (COVID-19), also referred to as the novel 'CoV19 (nCov19)' is caused by a new coronavirus strain similar to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV-2). SARS-CoV-2 spreads via respiratory droplets, saliva, or direct contact. Therefore it is important to control the viral load in the saliva and respiratory secretions. One of the most simple and cost-effective measures that can be adopted by the public and healthcare professionals to prevent cross-contamination and community transmission, is the implementation of effective oral and throat hygiene. Recent evidence has confirmed that 0.5% povidone iodine (PVP-I) mouthrinse/gargle for 30 s can reduce SARS-CoV-2 virus infectivity to below detectable levels. PVP-I can even interrupt SARS-CoV-2 attachment to oral and nasopharyngeal tissues and lower the viral particles in the saliva and respiratory droplets. Thus, the use of PVP-I mouthrinse as a prophylactic measure has been advocated across the globe to reduce disease transmission. Although the efficacy of PVP-I against SARS-CoV-2 is proven, no review articles have yet discussed the evidence and mechanisms of PVP-I against the SARS-CoV-2. Thus, this paper highlights the rationale, safety, recommendations, and dosage of PVP-I gargle/mouthrinse as an effective method to decrease the viral loads during the pressing times of COVID-19.”
Some also report that Xclear works well.
