We propose a spray or mouthwash containing nanoparticles with unique chemical and physical properties that neutralize the virus upon spraying or gargling, by a combination of chemical and irradiation methods.  This proposed mouthwash/spray will inhibit and/or reduce virus infiltration into the lungs, especially in infection-prone populations for prevention and early-stage treatment. In addition, this product can be used to protect medical teams dealing with corona patients. 

Additionally, the nanoparticles may be used in the future to neutralize additional viruses.
