Trump suggests injecting disinfectant

What the absolute heck? He thinks it's worth trying injections of disinfectant to fight Covid-19... but then says he's "not a doctor". No kidding, Oh Great Orange One, no kidding.

Re: Trump suggests injecting disinfectant

I thought I mis-heard that a few moments ago on the news. What does he suggest? Dettol?

Re: Trump suggests injecting disinfectant

If people read just what he said and in context with everything else being said and not concentrated on the spin put on it in the MSM a rather different story comes out.

Re: Trump suggests injecting disinfectant

What did President Trump say?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-52407177

During Thursday's White House coronavirus task force briefing, an official presented the results of US government research that indicated coronavirus appeared to weaken more quickly when exposed to sunlight and heat.

The study also showed bleach could kill the virus in saliva or respiratory fluids within five minutes and isopropyl alcohol could kill it even more quickly.

William Bryan, acting head of the US Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate, outlined the findings at the news conference.

While noting the research should be treated with caution, Mr Trump suggested further research in that area.

"So, supposing we hit the body with a tremendous - whether it's ultraviolet or just very powerful light," the president said, turning to Dr Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus response co-ordinator, "and I think you said that hasn't been checked but you're going to test it.

"And then I said, supposing you brought the light inside of the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way. And I think you said you're going to test that too. Sounds interesting," the president continued.

"And then I see the 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?

"So it'd be interesting to check that."

Pointing to his head, Mr Trump went on: "I'm not a doctor. But I'm, like, a person that has a good you-know-what."
A journalist at the briefing questioned whether Mr Trump's off-the-cuff remarks could spread dangerous disinformation to Americans.
Of course they could - many Americans actually believe the words that come out of Trump's mouth .....

What's the reaction been to Trump's comments?

Doctors warned the president's idea could have fatal results.
Pulmonologist Dr Vin Gupta told NBC News: "This notion of injecting or ingesting any type of cleansing product into the body is irresponsible and it's dangerous.

"It's a common method that people utilise when they want to kill themselves."

Kashif Mahmood, a doctor in Charleston, West Virginia, tweeted: "As a physician, I can't recommend injecting disinfectant into the lungs or using UV radiation inside the body to treat Covid-19.

"Don't take medical advice from Trump."
John Balmes, a pulmonologist at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, warned that even breathing fumes from bleach could cause severe health problems.

He told Bloomberg News: "Inhaling chlorine bleach would be absolutely the worst thing for the lungs. The airway and lungs are not made to be exposed to even an aerosol of disinfectant.

"Not even a low dilution of bleach or isopropyl alcohol is safe. It's a totally ridiculous concept."

No, he's primarily a successful businessman who is doing as good a job as he and the Republican party can to heal the broken America.

Broken by immigrants who just want what they can get rather than becoming Americans, and stupid selfish Socialists who are too thick to realise that without a vibrant Capitalism there can be no Socialism.

Anyone can watch what he said and there's no spin then. He should leave the science reports to the scientists.

Is it true that he has asked the UK for a bailout for his golf resorts?
