We have defense cells in the substance we call mucus. We also have antibodies in our mouth that fight the virus. If you use unnecessary drugs, break the barrier in your mouth, including alcohol with chemicals, you will face more coronavirus. So do not interfere with the biology of your mouth and lungs. "
