Senator Ron Johnson's Latest Recommendation on COVID-19 Raising Some Eyebrows

Friday, December 10th, 2021 -- 9:08 AM

(Bob Hague, WRN) U.S. Senator Ron Johnson’s latest recommendation on COVID-19 is raising eyebrows.

The Wisconsin Republican, who’s made numerous discredited claims regarding coronavirus treatments and vaccines, was at it again this week, suggesting during a town hall that gargling with mouthwash “has been proven to kill the coronavirus.”

While gargling can partially kill off parts of the virus in the mouth, health experts say most infections occur through the nose. A website run by Listerine says that product “is not intended to prevent or treat COVID-19 and should be used only as directed.”
