In the waning months of the pandemic, with mobility being gradually restored, Filipino families are raring to see the world again. With multitudes having been “vaxxed” and “boostered”, not even the oil price hikes can rein in the footloose ones. They’re hanging out at restos and malls, and driving to resorts and other weekend destinations with nary a care.
Still, there is increasing concern about the current uptick in COVID-19 cases in the country, indicating that the Philippines – as are its Southeast Asian neighbors – is not out of the woods yet. Moreover, regular reports about the virus’s more transmissible newer variants are stoking fear and anxiety about a possible covid resurge and its potential impact on our newly recovering economy.
Fortunately, lessons culled from the pandemic are spurring families to proactively seek ways to bolster their immunity and protection while ensuring their mental and emotional health. With prevention as the best safeguard, there is renewed focus on alternative options for keeping COVID-19 away.
One effective solution is Covidone TS, an antiseptic throat spray that contains povidone-iodine. While povidone-iodine is known as a topical preparation for disinfecting wounds, multiple studies have shown its viability as a substance for oral prophylaxis. Povidone iodine has been shown to kill 99.9 percent of fungi, bacteria, and viruses that may lead to common throat ailments, including the SARS-CoV-2 which causes COVID-19.
For this reason, Covidone TS, which contains 0.5 percent of povidone-iodine as an active ingredient, presents itself as a simple and convenient safety measure for all families looking for that extra layer of protection from illness.
As an FDA-approved product, Covidone TS is safe for all adults and even children aged 6 years and up. This means that Covidone TS helps protect most members of the family while they are out there—and will help ensure school children’s safety now that onsite learning is mandatory.
“We understand the health concerns of Filipino families,” says Nutrana Health and Wellness Co. CEO Ernesto Abad II. “That’s why we want to provide them with that indispensable layer of protection through Covidone TS.”
Abad believes that Covidone TS can ease the anxiety of Filipinos who need to leave their homes for work but are afraid to get sick. “Taking care of Filipino families, the building blocks of our communities,” he asserts, “is why we came up with Covidone in the first place.”
To cap its benefits, Covidone TS is very handy to keep or take anywhere. The throat spray is readily available at the nearest drug store, grocery store, or supermarket. No need for a prescription—adults can simply grab a bottle and stash it in their medicine cabinet, their totes, or family kikay kits.
Covidone’s glass bottle can also withstand heat up to 30 degrees Celsius; prevents spillage or leaking; and is durable enough to adapt to any storage situation, which means you can bring it with you wherever you go without worry.
Application is easy, too–just spray Covidone 2-3 times into the throat, making an “aah” sound to avoid inhaling or ingesting the substance. Then spit out any excess liquid after 15 seconds.
Aside from physical stores, interested customers can purchase Covidone at Lazada or Shopee from the comfort of their own homes.
