On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition your host, Katrina Sanders, RDH talks to us about the latest information about COVID-19 and a link between SARS-CoV-2 and the mouth, researched by the National Institute of Health.
“The scientists within the NIH actually gathered samples of the cells, of the mouths of individuals who lost their life to SARS-CoV-2 of course, they found that SARS-CoV-2 was in the lungs or even potentially in the digestive system, but what they found was in a bulk majority of these individuals, SARS-CoV-2 was detected in the salivary tissue.”
“Researchers are indicating and suggesting that the mouth via infected oral cells actually plays a bigger role in the subsequent infection of SARS-CoV-2 than previously thought.”
