NH Gov Rails Agains Sen Ron Johnson's 'Crazy' COVID Mouthwash Statement

Sen Johnson claimed this week that ”standard“ mouthwash can kill COVID-19

In the past, Johnson has promoted other unproven cures and treatments for COVID-19, including ivermectin. The local news in his state, Wisconsin, reported in September that he doubled down on those promotions after facing criticism.

A dentist-resource site operated by Listerine, a popular mouthwash, makes clear, “As a global leader in oral care, we have reviewed recent literature, as well as registered clinical trials regarding mouthwash and COVID-19. As more external study results are proposed and published, we are also working with trusted partners to explore the efficacy of LISTERINE® mouthwashes inactivating the COVID-19 virus. Current available data is insufficient to support a conclusion that the use of LISTERINE® mouthwash is helpful in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.”

In bold, it reiterates, “LISTERINE® Antiseptic is not intended to prevent or treat COVID-19 and should be used only as directed on the product label.”
