President Donald Trump caused a huge controversy on social media when he had suggested that disinfectants could be injected inside the body in order to rid it of coronavirus. His comments had absolutely no scientific backing and could have actually created a dangerous situation for millions of Americans listening
Reckitt Bensicker, which owns Lysol and Dettol had to actually come out and issue a statement to give some clarity after Trump’s comments. It issued a strong warning. The users were advised against ingesting the solution in any form as it could be extremely dangerous for the body. “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 company said in a statement.
This led to Donald Trump being bashed by Doctors and the normal public alike. However, it’s important to recall what he had said exactly. Let’s find out.

And then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute,” he said. “And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning?
“Because you see it gets in the lungs and does a tremendous number on them, so it’d be interesting to check that,” he said.
The White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany had to clarify things saying that he had prioritised doctor’s advice. It was already too late until that point. The US certainly need better medical advice.
