Effective Against Bird Flu?
Bird flu. I am investigating decontamination of FFP3 masks and the mask / face interface. my friend who is a lab rat suggested H2O2 as a suitable fluid. I then read about the use of H2O2 in the ears to prevent ingestion of the human flu virus and wondered if the same approach could be made for the mouth and nose. Later I found reference to a nasal swab that killed off virus entering the nose. So I am very interested in any info on the use of H2O2 for decontamination of H5N1 masks. Now if H2O2 will kill H5N1 on surfaces, I am wondering if it would be safe to actually breathe into the lungs, via the mouth and nose. From what is on your website it appears that people already do this, without any reported adverse effects. So I am wondering if you know of any medical evidence that may be relevant ?. Great site! Thanks very much.
