Pres. Trump Suggests Injecting Disinfectant To Fight Coronavirus

President Donald Trump suggested Americans could possibly inject disinfectant into their bodies to help fight the coronavirus, while also floating the idea of getting bright light, such as UV rays, into the body after hearing it is bad for the virus.

"I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute," the president said. "And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning? As you see, it gets in the lungs, it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that." Trump did not specify the kind of disinfectant.

The unsubstantiated and potentially dangerous suggestions came during a Thursday task force briefing where Mr. Trump called on DHS official Bill Bryan to outline early results from a study that showed the effect of heat on the virus.

He indicated that this came from his own head and he's just throwing it out there as a suggestion. These "ideas" where not approved or supported by his team.
