At first glance, coronavirus appears to be retreating from all aspects of life in the UK. Many shops, pubs and restaurants are back open for business and broad swathes of the public appear to be undaunted in their daily travels. In less visible parts of the country, fears of a second wave are growing, however.
A leaked government report suggests a “reasonable worst case scenario” of 85,000 deaths across the UK this winter due to COVID-19.
The importance of fortifying the immune system ahead of the cold and flu season is greater than ever this year and evidence suggests administering a particular nasal spray may help.
Why a nasal spray?
Despite the initial advice, experts now believe that antiviral protection in our noses is more effective at preventing the spread of viruses than sanitising our hands.
Breathing expert Tim Ives, explained: “Our nose is a very effective natural filter and does a great job at keeping many airborne viruses at bay.

So, what nasal spray should you opt for?
New research shows that Xlear Nasal Spray is proven to kill the COVID-19 virus.
The natural nasal spray contains Xylitol, known for its proven anti-bacterial properties and grapefruit seed extract which is effective at killing viruses, including the COVID-19.
Commenting on these findings, Ives said: “The recent study from Utah State University is very encouraging and shows that the COVID-19 virus can be killed by the grapefruit seed extract which is used in Xlear Nasal Spray.
“In my opinion, using Xlear Nasal Spray as part of your daily routine is an effective way to protect yourself from the COVID-19 virus.”
Xlear Nasal Spray is not only effective at killing the COVID-19 virus.
According to study published in the journal Nutrients, it’s also been clinically proven to prevent and treat upper respiratory conditions, sinusitis and common colds.
To reap the optimal benefits, it is recommended that you use Xlear’s Nasal Spray once in the morning and once at night for ultimate protection against airborne contaminants.
If you do get ill, the product developers advise using Xlear up to four times daily to recover faster.
How do I know if I have COVID-19?
According to the NHS, the main symptoms of coronavirus are:
- A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
“Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms,” says the health body.
What to do if you have symptoms
If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:
- Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.
- Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.
“Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get your result,” says the NHS.
