President Trump Suggests Using UV Light Or Injecting Disinfectant As Possible Treatment For Coronavirus Patients

For today’s daily briefing on the coronavirus, Donald Trump had some ideas about how to treat COVID-19 patients and let’s just say, it’s a real head scratcher. Trump suggested the possibility of an “injection” of disinfectant into a person infected with the virus as a coronavirus deterrent, according to NBC News.

Trump made the remark after Bill Bryan, a Department of Homeland Security official who leads the department’s Science and Technology division, gave a presentation on research his team has conducted that shows the virus doesn’t live as long in warmer and more humid temperatures. Bryan said, “the virus dies quickest in sunlight.”

“I see the disinfectant that 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,” Trump said during the briefing, speaking to his health officials. “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.

Following Trump’s statements, Bryan, under questioning from reporters, later said federal laboratories are not considering such a treatment option. 

Bryan added that heat and humidity alone wouldn’t kill the virus if people don’t continue to social distance.

Bryan was later asked to clarify, saying this is not the kind of work he does in his lab, before Trump jumped in and added, “maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t work.”

This isn’t the first time Trump caught some flack for speaking on unproven treatments for coronavirus during these briefings.

For instance, he talked up hydroxychloroquine and as a potential “game changer” in the battle against the coronavirus, but health officials have strongly cautioned against it.

Dr. Rick Bright, a top official at Health and Human Services, says he was ousted from his job earlier this week for pushing back on demands that he sign off on chloroquine treatments.
