EPA Warns Against Injecting Self With Cleaner After Trump Remarks
After President Trump seemed to suggest that people can get rid of coronavirus by injecting themselves with disinfectants, the Environmental Protection Agency issued a statement pushing back on those statements today.
They've told consumers, "Never apply the product to yourself or others. Do not ingest disinfectant products."
The company that makes the household cleaner Lysol also made sure you know that they share the same thoughts with a similar warning.
“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),” was the statement from Reckitt Benckiser.
From the AP, "solar light" and heat were some of the other miracle cures suggested by the White House during yesterday's press briefing, but the Department of Homeland Security says it didn't intend to start testing these interesting remedies.
So, don't inject yourself with bleach or cleaner, k? K.
