Oral hygiene vs nCoV: Public told to gargle with lukewarm water, salt

Taking care of one's oral health lowers the chances of being a carrier of different viruses, an expert said amid the threat of the novel coronavirus (nCoV); advising people to to gargle with lukewarm water and salt.

"Maging part na po ng oral hygiene ang pagmumumog po ng maligamgam na tubig na may asin—may coronavirus scare man o wala," Dr. Rey Salinel said in a recent television interview.

"Marami pong namamatay na bacteria at viruses sa high-salt concentration," he added.

Moreover, he advised the public to exercise frequent handwashing and sanitizing with alcohol-based products, noting,  "Huwag ninyo pong hawakan ang mga mata ninyo, ilong ninyo, bibig ninyo kasi 'yan po ang portal of entry. Napaka-importante pong malinis ang kamay."

Following the advice of the Emergency Committee, the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the nCoV outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). 

Still, the committee believes that it is still possible to interrupt virus spread, provided that countries put in place strong measures to detect disease early, isolate and treat cases, trace contacts, and promote social distancing measures commensurate with the risk. 

"It is important to note that as the situation continues to evolve, so will the strategic goals and measures to prevent and reduce spread of the infection," the WHO statement noted.

"The declaration of a PHEIC should be seen in the spirit of support and appreciation for China, its people, and the actions China has taken on the frontlines of this outbreak, with transparency, and, it is to be hoped, with success. In line with the need for global solidarity, the Committee felt that a global coordinated effort is needed to enhance preparedness in other regions of the world that may need additional support for that," it further stated.
