The US President Donald Trump made some sensational comments on consumption and injecting disinfectant products to beat coronavirus and it drew big blowback from all the doctors along with the disinfectant manufacturer Lysol. Trump during his briefing suggested the cleaning of lungs with a disinfectant and the medical professionals condemned his improper health messaging.
Trump’s idea of injecting or ingesting any type of cleansing product into the body is way too irresponsible and dangerous. Top health professionals do not advise it, as it is the most common method that people utilize when they want to kill themselves.
The disinfectant maker Lyzol made an official statement, asking people not to consume any of their cleaning products. Trump is repeatedly misguiding with the health messages like campaigning hydroxychloroquine, now consuming disinfectants that are dangerous and unproven. Trump also spoke about how the virus can die if some powerful light like ultraviolet can be put ‘inside the body’ in reply to the comment made by Bill Bryan that virus may not survive long in warmer and more humid temperatures.
Meanwhile, the US has a death toll of more than 50,000 by today since the COVID-19 infection appeared in the country for the first time in January this year. There are more than 870,000 positive Coronavirus cases in the US.
The virus has spread to every state in the US with the highest ever in New York state with more than 263,500 positive coronavirus cases and almost 21,000 deaths. New Jersey, Massachusetts, California, Pennsylvania, and Illinois also recorded a high number of cases.
