The third wave of corona around the world has created havoc. There are also several cases of omicrons coming to light. The third wave is not proving fatal but it is said to be quite contagious. In such a situation, it is important not to be negligent. The third wave is also engulfing completely vaccinated people and that is why everyone is being asked to be careful. However, if you are infected with or recovering from corona, do change your toothbrush. Because it can prove to be quite harmful. It can also put people who share the same bathroom with you at risk. Dr Anjana Satyajit has given this information.
Talking to a famous website, Anjana Satyajit said, "It is a good habit to change your toothbrush every three months. But after covid, don't delay it at all and replace it immediately. While she adds that the virus can survive long hours on plastic surfaces, you should replace the toothbrush to stay safe. Yes because it will not only protect you from being re-infected but also other family members who share bathrooms with you. Use a new tung cleaner to prevent infection. We all know that Covid 19 damages our immune system, although at the same time it also affects your oral health and can lead to dry mouth and gum ulcers.
It is important to maintain oral hygiene in today's time, as it can increase the spread of the virus. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) says that the virus is transmitted mainly through small drops coming out of the mouth of an infected person, especially when they cough, sneeze, talk, or laugh. It is possible to be infected by touching infected surfaces with the virus. That is why it is important not only to wash and clean your hands regularly, but you should also disinfect the surfaces from time to time.
