The corona virus spreads mainly through droplet infection from the mouth and nose and can be detected before, during and after the acute phase of the disease. The length of contact and the amount of virus are the deciding factors as to whether people who come into contact with infected people become infected themselves. A reduction in the viral load in the mouth and thus in the exhaled air could help to significantly reduce transmission. The test results show that the use of Covidgum, in addition to other protective measures, can play an important role in reducing the viral transmission of Corona.
Prof. Dr. Florian Pfab, inventor of Covidgum, says: “The results of the previous pilot study to lower the viral load are very promising. Covidgum is the only chewing gum certified as a medical device to date that has shown positive results in reducing the viral load in the mouth. “
