In this qualitative prospective survey, usefulness of a mouth-dissolving turmeric lozenge was evaluated among health-care workers (HCWs) directly involved in COVID-19 duty. 303, HCWs serving COVID-19 ward duties received a globally patented mouth-dissolving turmeric lozenge three times daily for 1 month as an additional protective intervention on top of the standard recommended preventive measures. An intervention that can control the portal of entry of the virus and its replication in the oral cavity must be considered for further research to control the pandemic. The preliminary results with this mouth-dissolving turmeric lozenge hold promise for further research in this area.
