Dr Hilary said: “I have had many weird ideas of what a person can inhale to help protect them against COVID-19.
“I have also had many offers from companies to endorse their mouthwash and I say no to them.
“There is no evidence that that mouthwash can kill COVID-19.
“Mouthwash does help to kill bacteria and viruses in the mouth but not something like COVID-19.
“There are small studies that say it might have some benefits, but we can’t say for sure and people should not run out to buy mouthwash.”
