Republican Senator Suggests Mouthwash for COVID

Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson has come up with the latest quack cure for coronavirus and that is mouthwash. Ever since the pandemic began, Republicans have pretended to have the secret miracle cures for COVID which have most notably included hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin. Johnson argued at a tele-town hall on Wednesday that it’s been proven that mouthwash can kill the virus. “A standard gargle of mouthwash has been proven to kill the coronavirus. So even if you get it, you know you may reduce viral replication. Why not try all these things?” There is a kernel of truth in what Johnson is saying which is that if you have the virus in a petri dish and add mouthwash to it, it’ll almost certainly kill the virus. But people who are infected with COVID have it running through their entire breathing system, so using mouthwash is not going to help. Johnson is pretending that this is a legitimate solution for the pandemic and an alternative to getting vaccinated, but it obviously isn’t.
