Magazine ear nose throat published a study conducted in the first pandemic year: Scientists at Augusta University’s Medical College of Georgia asked people who had just contracted Covid to rinse their noses with a common saline solution. A small group of people (about 80 people) were asked to wash their noses with a solution from the first day of infection and for 14 days (then the period of isolation and the estimated period of infection was just that). Of this group, only 1.5 percent of people with a severe course were hospitalized. Of the other group, where the nose was not washed, 10 percent of the people ended up in hospital, a few died…

As scientists explain, the virus, getting on the mucous membrane, immediately begins to actively interact with a special protein, through which it enters the body. Not allowing it to attach to the protein can significantly reduce the risk of serious illness. Scientists clarify that washing is effective on the first day after a positive test, that is, at the beginning of the infection.

In principle, this discovery only confirmed the fact that during the cold viral season, simply washing the nose prevents infection. “In general, washing with saline solutions and plain water helps to reduce the viral load,” said Vladimir Beketov, a pulmonologist at Sechenov University who is a medical science candidate. – But you have to do it as soon as possible. When washing the nose and throat, immediately upon arrival from a crowded place, it is possible to mechanically remove that part of the viral particles that has not yet had time to infiltrate the cells. And it is best to use solutions with sodium hyaluronate for washing the nose: they provide not only mechanical cleaning, but also complete hydration of the nasal mucosa. (


How not to bring yourself to sinusitis?

Advisor to the Club of Children’s Experts, ENT doctor, allergist-immunologist Irina Grigorieva remembers, how to prevent the transition from a “banal” cold to sinusitis:

*Use moisturizing creams and prevent drying of the nasal mucosa: a good mucus barrier layer helps us to protect against viruses. Isotonic saline solutions, saline – all this is relevant for infants and the elderly (they have reduced mucosal fluid).

* Sufficient humidity in the room is 45-60% (up to 55%).

* Drink more (at least 1.5-2 liters per day, children – up to 1.5 liters). “Internal” hydration is no less important for the mucous membranes. In addition, the heating season has started.

* Avoid smokers – exposure to harmful substances on the mucous membrane during the cold season is doubly fraught.

* Start prophylactically with vitamin D (this is a good immunomodulator).

* Get a flu shot.
