The pandemic has surely a way to get to us. With the lockdown and its consequences showing up more pristinely each day, we turn to some questionable thoughts that instantly make us nod our heads in disagreement and move on. But when the questionable thoughts stop being just thoughts and end up out loud, they sound preposterous, to say the least.
Post a presentation on Thursday that brushed over the idea that disinfectants can kill the coronavirus on the surfaces and in the air, President of the United States of America wondered if those chemicals could be used to fight the virus inside the human body.
Trump was recorded saying, “I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute.” To which he further added, “And 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 question left a lot of heads turned and people reacted to this question with utmost incredulity, and even in some cases, dismay.
Craig Spencer, who is the director of the Global Health Medical Center told the Washington Post that “My concern is that people will die. People will think this is a good idea.” He also added, “this is not willy-nilly, off-the-cuff, maybe-this-will-work advice. This is dangerous.”
A definite eye-brow-raiser of a question has stunned medical experts all around the world
