Acid or Alkali? Is this a valid reaction in a biological system?

Is this a valid reaction in a biological system that can make the claim for making the blood more alkali ?

 

H2O + NaCl + CO2 --> HCl + NaHCO3-

 

It would seem to me that both acid (HCl) and alkali  (HCO3-) are produced so the end product would be neutral. Your thoughts?
