Washington, Sep 13 (PTI) Starting twice daily flushing of the nasal cavity with a mild saline solution soon after testing positive for COVID-19 may reduce hospitalisation due to the viral disease, a study claims.

The technique involves mixing a half teaspoon each of salt and baking soda in a cup of boiled water and then putting it into a sinus rinse bottle, making it a safe, effective and inexpensive way that can have a vital public health impact.

“By giving extra hydration to your sinuses, it makes them function better,” said Amy Baxter, from Augusta University, US.
