Sometimes it's vertical, sometimes its horizontal.  Fark, why you do this?!

But does the nasal spray contain micro-chips and lizard changing abilities in one's DNA?

Unless you have a "good" mask, it's more about stopping droplets at the source - about not spreading it to others rather than avoiding being exposed

Great idea to use *with* a mask. But I'm not trusting anyone who isn't wearing a mask until at least 6 months after basically everyone is vaccinated.

two days??? I get the business plan but 2 days???

So never. That's my plan too.

I'm still not trusting them at all.

I mean, at that point I'm pretty sure I'll be safe from COVID, but what other shiat are those filthy bastards carrying?

That would block the virus if you used enough.

You know that 90% of them would claim to have used the spray but didn't.

That's great for the nose.
What about that other hole in the face?

Damn, I was hoping this was a story about somebody getting pepper sprayed in the face for not wearing a mask.

Once everyone has been vaccinated this spray might still be useful in limiting the spread of the common cold.
 
2021-01-26 9:59:40 AM  
Too many mouth breathers out there for this to be effective.

"The spray includes an antiviral agent called carrageenan - also used as a thickening agent in food - and a solution called gellan, a gelling agent that sticks to cells in the nose."

That's odd, it smells like bullshiat to me.

Yeah, I don't see much benefit since the majority of people who will refuse to get vaccinated are mouthbreathers.

I tried it, and now I've lost my sense of smell.

Oh god, that's one of the symptoms!
 
2021-01-26 10:03:29 AM  
I mean, logically, with the widespread and rampant dissemination of the virus, are we really sure that  the virus won't evolve  to be resistant to the vaccine due to our slow rollout?

Nirbo: The NYPost is sniffing glue again.


I don't think they ever stopped.
 
2021-01-26 10:05:59 AM  
Now you want me to voluntarily snort in Bill Gate's nanobots?

And the other two - ocular absorption is still a thing.

As a bonus to avoiding covid, I haven't had a head cold for nearly a year. Masks and being careful about what you touch might be good long-term habits.

I'm sure anti-maskers will jump right on this.

What that sign is trying to say:

The nanny is dead from Covid
The big brother is dead from Covid
The dad is dead from Covid

Poor family.

Alcohol itself isn't very good at denaturing coronavirus unless it is evaporating whole deposited on the envelope.  Certain antiviral essential oils work wonders, however, and can be added to alcohol to give it a still-wet antiviral ability.

Mouthbreathers are farkt

Old bags talking on the bus the other day, one with her mask down, the other with no mask whatsever. I tell them:

If you can't or won't for some reason wear a mask, the LEAST you can do is SHUT YOUR MOUTH.  With every word you're just making it worse.

They didn't like that.
 
2021-01-26 11:13:44 AM  
Sounds like this new one has additional ingredients, but Betadine already has a carrageenan-containing nasal spray on store shelves. Similar concept of trapping virus particles in carrageenan, anyway.
 
2021-01-26 11:19:25 AM  
So what about your eyes? They're just as liable to be a vector channel.

I've got some expanding foam epoxy crap lying around...tube up each nostril the filling the pie hole, 100% protection from covid entering afterwards.

The spray - developed by scientists at the University of Birmingham - prevents infection by capturing the bug in the nose and covering it in a coating from which it cannot escape

So just snort seaweed?

That's great for nose breathing (IF it works) but when you're in close proximity talking to people you breathe through your mouth.

Wear the damn mask, get the damn vaccine as soon as you can, and keep following the protocols.  Believe it or not, we could take care of this quickly if people would grow the fark up.

Been done.
 
2021-01-26 1:44:21 PM  
So why not just make a nasal spray that binds to the spike proteins to render them ineffective?

/I'll open source that idea
