A prominent dentist in the UK has proposed a new preventive measure to effectively block the Corona19 virus.

According to foreign news sources such as The Sun on the 10th of local time, Emeritus Professor Martin Addie of Bristol University claimed that 'cleaning your teeth hardly' was as important as washing your hands to prevent infection. 

Professor Addy is an authoritative and publicly friendly person who has been selected as the 'Dentist of the Year' in the UK. "It has been often mentioned how important hand washing is to prevent the spread of the virus, but it is surprising that no one mentions the importance of this cleaning," said Addy. 

He said, "The mask blocks the virus by blocking the droplets. When you wipe it, you get another protective mask like a mask." The antibacterial component in toothpaste lasts from 3 to 5 hours and prevents virus penetration.
Professor Addy also described this recommended cleaning method for effective infection prevention.

He said, "Wipe your teeth for two minutes just before you leave the house, then wear protective gear like a mask." In particular, after brushing his teeth, he said that it is better not to rinse the mouth, but to spit out bubbles and leave a residue in the mouth.

He added, "We need to be especially cautious because elderly patients who need to clean their teeth instead of nursing or nursing care providers are not likely to brush their teeth frequently."
