After President Donald Trump made the idiotic suggestion of injecting people with disinfectants, the makers of Lysol, the Washington State Emergency Management Division and the Environmental Protection Agency is leveling up for damage control.
Let’s be clear: injecting people with disinfectants will not protect them from COVID-19. On the contrary, it will kill them.
On Thursday night’s White House briefing, an official from the Department of Homeland Security revealed that they’re analyzing whether household cleaners like bleach and rubbing alcohol can kill the Coronavirus. They tried this on inanimate, non-living surfaces, thankfully.
Trump said: “And then I see disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute — one minute — and is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside, or almost a cleaning. Because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that. So, that you’re going to have to use medical doctors with, but it sounds interesting to me.”
Disinfectants are harsh chemicals so to straighten it out, they can kill bacteria on a surface level but they should not be injected or consumed in any other way.
Lysol gave an official statement: “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).”
Similarly, the New York State Department of Health put out a warning on Twitter.
The White House Press Secretary, however, suggests that President Trump’s statement was taken out of context. He said that, “President Trump has repeatedly said that Americans should consult with medical doctors regarding Coronavirus treatment.”
“Supposing you brought the light inside the body, either through the skin, or some other way?” – said President Trump in the same briefing.
People all over America take what Trump says too seriously and have already started suffering from its deadly consequences now!
