Can Nasal Irrigation reduce the chances of contracting Coronavirus?

The Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has already created panic and alertness across the world. India is not far behind, as 3 cases of Coronavirus have been confirmed in Kerala.

Coronavirus is a viral infection much like any other rhinovirus it affects your respiratory system. It is not particularly dangerous unless you have a compromised immune system.

Symptoms of Coronavirus include fever, breathing difficulties and cough. It can eventually lead to more severe cases and the virus can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. It is believed that the symptoms of Coronavirus may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 after exposure.            

How is Coronavirus transmitted? Person-to-person spread is thought to occur mainly via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how other rhinoviruses spread. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

How can people protect themselves from Coronavirus?

Keep doing the basics wash hands often, cover your face when coughing or sneezing, take care of yourself and stay alert.

There is no evidence backing the claim that nasal irrigation passages regularly can reduce chances of contracting coronavirus. However if you are having rhinovirus symptoms or would like to take preventive measures we would advise using The Clear Nasal rinse which will help wash away any excess mucus or irritants inside your nose, which can reduce inflammation and relieve your symptoms.

Nasal irrigation is a personal hygiene practice and Nasal hygiene is extremely important as your nose is the doorway to your respiratory system. Clear Nasal rinse is formulated to help relieve symptoms of mild to moderate upper respiratory problems such as a runny nose, sinus infections, allergies, etc.

Including this practice in your daily routine will help your immunity increase and with boosted immunity levels, the occurrence or severity of coronavirus is greatly reduced.
