Trump Ponders Whether Light Or Disinfectant Injections Can 'Cure' Coronavirus

President Donald Trump suggested injecting people with disinfectant or light to fight off COVID-19 after a Department of Homeland Security official presented studies showing that ultraviolet rays may be effective at killing the virus on surfaces and in the air.

After senior DHS official Bill Bryan said that experiments have shown the novel coronavirus does not survive well in sunlight, warm temperatures or humidity, Trump began proposing his own solutions at the coronavirus task force update on Thursday.

“Suppose that we hit the body with tremendous, whether it’s ultraviolet or just very powerful light, and I think you said that it hasn’t been checked and you’re going to test it,” Trump said. “Suppose you can bring the light inside the body.”

“Then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in one minute,” Trump continued. “Is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside, or almost a cleaning? … It would be interesting to check that.”



This Trump idea is highly dangerous. It has been refuted by all scientists.

An exception may be some Trump supporter.

The company that makes Lysol products has urged people not to try injecting disinfectants to treat coronavirus after U.S. President Donald Trump said it “would be interesting to check that.”
Manufacturer RB was forced to issue the extraordinary statement a day after Trump was accused of “actively endangering the public’s health” in his latest press briefing.

RB, the company behind Lysol and Dettol brands, issued a statement on Friday saying: “Due to recent speculation and social media activity, RB has been asked whether internal administration of disinfectants may be appropriate for investigation or use as a treatment for coronavirus.

“As a global leader in health and hygiene products, we must be clear that under no circumstance should our disinfectant products be administered into the human body through injection, ingestion or any other route.”
Senior U.S. officials have already had to clarify that there were no plans to inject disinfectant into Americans and experts lambasted the idea wholesale.



I do not know what the Trump-apologist will say now.

Regardless of the intent behind Trump’s statements, they compelled the American Cleaning Institute, which represents the manufacturers and formulators of various cleaning products, to publish a news release Friday “in response to speculation about the use of disinfectants in or on one’s body.”

“Disinfectants are meant to kill germs or viruses on hard surfaces. Under no circumstances should they ever be used on one’s skin, ingested or injected internally,” the ACI said. “We remind everyone to please use all hygiene, cleaning and disinfecting products as directed in order to ensure safe, effective and intended use of those products.”

Even Surgeon General Jerome Adams appeared to caution against the president’s advice, reminding Americans in a tweet to “PLEASE always talk to your health provider first before administering any treatment/medication to yourself or a loved one.”

“Your safety is paramount, and doctors and nurses ... have years of training to recommend what’s safe and effective,” Adams wrote.

  • Trump’s comments came after Homeland Security official Bill Bryan presented new findings that showed the ability of disinfectants to kill the coronavirus on surfaces.
  • Bryan said bleach will kill the virus in five minutes when applied to surfaces and isopropyl alcohol kills the virus in 30 seconds.
  • The consumption or injection of disinfectants is not only unproven to be effective in treating Covid-19, but it can lead to death, former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said.
The maker of Lysol and former head of the Food and Drug Administration strongly warned on Friday against consuming or injecting disinfectants into the body after President Donald Trump publicly asked whether doing so can be used to treat Covid-19.

Consuming disinfectants can be fatal, former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb told CNBC, adding that there’s no “kernel of credibility or truth to doing something like ingesting bleach or injecting bleach as a treatment for anything.”




Trump’s comments came after Homeland Security official Bill Bryan presented new findings that showed the ability of disinfectants to kill the coronavirus on surfaces. Bryan said bleach will kill the virus in five minutes when applied to surfaces and isopropyl alcohol kills the virus in 30 seconds.

“I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute. One minute,” Trump said Thursday evening at a nationally televised White House press briefing. “Is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside, or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets inside the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that.”

The White House said Friday that media reports on Trump’s comments were out of context. Trump said later Friday the comment was “sarcastic.”

Reckitt Benckiser, the U.K.-based manufacturer of Lysol and other household cleaning products, said in a statement that its products “should only be used as intended” and “under no circumstance” should the products be consumed by people.

“As a global leader in health and hygiene products, we must be clear that under no circumstance should our disinfectant products be administered into the human body (through injection, ingestion or any other route),” RB said in a statement. “As with all products, our disinfectant and hygiene products should only be used as intended and in line with usage guidelines.”



Mr. Trump supporter where do you hide now?

“What you just heard is the president of the United States just lying, right there,” Anderson Cooper said after playing footage from the Oval Office of President Donald Trump attempting to walk back his dangerous suggestion that injecting disinfectants could help cure the coronavirus.

When reporters asked him to clarify his comments on Friday, Trump claimed, “I was asking a very sarcastic question to the reporters in the room about disinfectant on the inside, but it does kill it and it would kill it on the hands and it would make things much better.”

“It’s fascinating because he’s lying about something that we all witnessed, just yesterday, of him talking to his own coronavirus task force about doing research into injecting bleach, disinfectants into people, somehow cleaning them from the inside,” the CNN anchor continued. “And now the president is claiming he was speaking sarcastically to reporters. There was no sarcasm. We have the tape.”

Cooper went on to call Trump’s original comments “dangerous and idiotic” and lambasted him for “raising the ludicrous idea that somehow injecting disinfectant” could be an effective treatment, “which to anyone who is out there is not something any human being should do.” He accused Trump of trying, “in Soviet fashion,” to “rewrite what we all know and saw as though we are all morons.”

As CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins pointed out, “This is a tactic we’ve seen the president take before,” claiming his comments were “sarcastic” after they have been “widely criticized.” Notable examples include the times Trump called former President Barack Obama the “founder of ISIS” and when he publicly thanked Vladimir Putin for expelling U.S. diplomats from Russia.

Before Trump used that excuse once again on Friday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany put out a statement that accused reporters of taking his comments “out of context.” She did not mention his supposed sarcasm.
