Keeping COVID-19 at bay in the Southern Hemisphere

Table of Contents

The COVID-19 virus has been lying quiet during autumn, but now, in the Southern Hemisphere, with people spending more time inside, indoor heating and wetter weather are keeping the air warm and humid, the perfect environment for SARS-CoV-2 to do the dirty.

It’s time to start taking whatever preventive measures will keep the bug at bay. 

The latest statistics show some concerning indications that COVID-19 is still among us.

New Zealand

New Zealand has crossed a line, reporting its 3000th confirmed Covid-19 death in the past week, and has 12,000+ confirmed or probable cases – and the virus is on track to claim twice as many lives as flu this year.


Australians are falling ill in large numbers each day as rates of influenza and COVID-19 skyrocket. Australia has consistently reported more than thirty thousand fresh COVID-19 cases each week, along with 80 deaths, and has a hospitalization rate of more than 1,300 people at any one time.

South Africa

Statistics are hard to come by for the latest months as South Africa shifts into the winter months, but even up to May, the figures were starting to point the same way as for other Southern Hemisphere countries. Similar to Australia, influenza cases are shooting up earlier in the year than expected, as reported by the National Institute for Communicable Diseases.

Handling the winter mini-pandemic

Hard lessons were learned when the pandemic first spread. Here are a few simple things you can do to keep yourself safe.

Immunize with vaccination

According to the website, “The latest health records show 16.6 million Australians have not had a Covid-19 booster in more than six months, as cases had increased by 28% over the past month. It’s estimated the number of people getting vaccinated has fallen by 10,000 per week over the past three weeks, leaving health officials worried ahead of the colder months.”

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (ATAGI) recommended in April that all adults and people aged 12-17 who are eligible for a 2023 booster dose should get it. 

Protect with barriers

Enovid anti-viral nasal sprayThere is a clinically proven way to stop the COVID-19 virus from multiplying before it has even reached the lungs. Enovid‘s patented nasal spray is designed to stop any virus (including the SARs-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19) in the nasal passages and upper airways, preventing it from even getting to the lungs and incubating there. Enovid creates a physical barrier in the nasal passages to stop viruses before they can pass through to the lungs. It also creates a chemical barrier of nitric oxide, which is known for its antimicrobial qualities. 

The Enovid spray can be carried around like a portable shield to raise a barrier against infection when risks are high. A dose of the spray in each nostril will provide protection for four to five hours. The spray has no side effects, doesn’t interfere with everyday activities, and can be used safely by youngsters, pregnant women and people who are on almost all types of medications. It’s a small, easily transportable spray that you can pop in the kids’ school bags or right into Nanna’s purse. Especially for the residents of retirement villages and homes, it’s a great feeling for them to know they have that extra layer of protection. 

Proactive self-care is a great step towards a COVID-free winter

Do what you can to protect yourself and others. Keep the viral load down by keeping a product like Enovid in your pocket (and give it to everyone else in your family). That way, regardless of what’s happening in the wider world, you know that you’ve taken proven measures to protect yourself and the ones you love. 


How does nitric oxide work?

Nitric oxide (NO) interferes with mRNA transcription and replication by inhibiting viral ribonucleotide or viral RNA synthesis. Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines work the same way, to kill the virus before it has a chance to replicate. The vaccines get to do their work once the virus has reached the lungs, while NO will stop it from even getting there.

Does Enovid work against all variants of SARS-CoV-2 viruses?

Enovid creates a universally hostile microenvironment in the nose, making it difficult for airborne viruses to find a surface to land and multiply. Even those that do get through the physical barrier find the nitric oxide that doesn’t just block viruses but actually kills them. Since COVID-19 is primarily transmitted via airborne spores, Enovid can effectively eliminate up to 99% of any viruses that land.

Where was Enovid developed?

SaNOtize, a joint Canadian/Israeli biotechnology startup, developed the Enovid NONS (nitric oxide nasal spray). It blocks the entry of viruses via the nose and halts viral replication within the nasal cavity. Those actions restrict the spread of the virus in the body.

What does Enovid do?

Enovid is the equivalent of a hand sanitizer that can be used in the nasal air passages. It creates an antiviral and antimicrobial nitric oxide (NO) chemical barrier inside the nasal cavities. It also forms a physical barrier in the airways to stop viruses and microbes from finding a surface to penetrate. NO doesn’t just block viruses but actually kills them. It starts working within a few minutes after administration and will be effective for up to 12 hours, reducing the viral load before any virus can find its way down into the lungs.
