Researchers Studying Whether Mouthwashes Can Reduce COVID-19 Transmission

In a Dec. 8 town hall meeting, Sen. Ron Johnson may have left a misleading impression in saying “standard gargle, mouthwash, has been proven to kill the coronavirus.” In the laboratory, some mouthwashes have been shown to block infectivity or suppress SARS-CoV-2, but studies involving people using mouthwash are not conclusive. Researchers are continuing to study the matter.

After mentioning vitamins D and C, and zinc, Johnson said: “By the way, standard gargle, mouthwash, has been proven to kill the coronavirus. If you get it, you may reduce viral replication. … Why not try all these things?” according to audio of the event posted by Heartland Signal, a left-leaning radio station and political news website.

“It just boggles my mind that the NIH continues to tell people, ‘Do nothing, you know, maybe take Tylenol,’” Johnson said.
