A new study shows that high levels of pollen correlate with the number of Covid-19 cases. The more pollen in the air, the more people get sick.

This is due to the pollen’s ability to weaken the immune system by impairing the secretion of interferons on the mucous membrane, which works as the body’s first defense on viruses.

Scientists’ states that it is important for everyone in high-risk groups to know that the pollen levels affect your immune system. It doesn’t matter if you are allergic to pollen or not, your immune system can still be affected.

Scientist recommend wearing a face mask to protect against the pollen, but it has to be a mask which filters the airborne particles…We recommend wearing NOSA allergy filter to protect your sensitive mucous membranes as well as your immune system.
