KKM: Delta variant can grow in the noses 德尔塔变种病毒可在鼻子里繁殖

Delta Variant 德尔塔变种

  • More contagious 传染性更高

  • Symptoms are similar to the original version - Headache, runny nose, sore throat 症状与原型病毒株相似,症状包括头痛、流鼻水、喉咙痛

  • Deteriorate quicker 病情转恶极快

  • Contributes to higher risk of COVID-19 related hospitalisation 导致更严重的病情,住院率更高

A new study finds that Delta variant can grow in the noses of vaccinated people as strongly as in unvaccinated people. The virus that grows is just as infectious as that in unvaccinated people. Vaccinated people can transmit the virus and infect others.


Frequent nasal douching by nasal spray can help to clean the bacteria and viruses in the nose. Potential antiviral agents for intranasal use include Xylitol.


Xylitol forms a protective barrier in the nostrils, having an unique activity to reduce viral loads. It can be used for prophylactic regimen for antibacterial and antiviral pathogens.
