“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? Because, you see, it gets on 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, but it sounds — it sounds interesting to me.”-The Stable Genius
As the US death toll from COVID-19 approaches 50K people, our ‘stable genius’ debated whether we could inject disinfectants inside our bodies to kill the virus. Medical professionals and the maker of Lysol responded by urging people not to consume cleaning products, which can be highly toxic.
Scarf Lady’s expression says it all:
Disinfectants like bleach are poisonous and dangerous when mishandled, doctors say. The maker of Lysol also issued a statement warning against any internal use of the cleaning product after Trump’s comments.
“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),” a spokesperson for Reckitt Benckiser, the United Kingdom-based owner of Lysol, said in a statement to NBC News.
“As with all products, our disinfectant and hygiene products should only be used as intended and in line with usage guidelines. Please read the label and safety information,” the statement continued, adding that the company believes it has a “responsibility in providing consumers with access to accurate, up-to-date information as advised by leading public health experts.”
UPDATE: The idiot clarifies his statement.
