[인사이트] Reporter Kim Han-sol = As Omicron, the main symptom of which is a sore throat, headache, and fever, has been transformed into a dominant species, interest in ‘povidone-iodine’, also known as the red pill, is growing.

From the early days of the corona pandemic, the saying ‘the red drug gets rid of the corona virus’ started to circulate, but one of the characteristic symptoms of Omicron is neck pain.

In fact, some studies have shown that gargling with povidone-iodine can kill 99.99% of the coronavirus.

According to the June 2021 issue of the open-access international journal Cardiovascular Medicine Review, Italian medical scientist Claudio Blasi used povidone-iodine solution to relieve symptoms of Corona patients.

First, Claudio Blasi asked a 70-year-old corona patient to inhale a 1% aqueous solution of povidone-iodine through the nose twice a day and gargle for 1 minute.

As a result, he said that he returned to normal body temperature after 24 hours and that the corona symptoms disappeared in 3 days.

However, the povidone-iodine solution used at this time was an aqueous solution subjected to sufficient dilution treatment.

In addition to Claudio Blasi’s research, studies in France and Japan have also confirmed that rinsing the throat with povidone-iodine reduces the amount of virus in the throat.

In fact, it is said that povidone-iodine gargle has been prescribed to patients with a sore throat even before Corona.

At this time, you must dilute the undiluted solution 15 to 30 times, gargle it, and then spit it out. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends gargling with 1% povidone-iodine solution for corona infection.

However, there is a high point that it is difficult to determine the effectiveness of povidone-iodine gargle.
