#TTFCovid19: United States president Donald Trump has walked back his suggestion that scientists test whether disinfectants like bleach could be injected into the human body to fight Coronavirus.

The president, who floated the idea at a White House briefing on Thursday, claimed he was only being sarcastic.

The next day, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany accused the media of taking Trump’s words out of context.

According to McEnany, what the President meant was that Americans should consult with their doctors about treatment.


United States president Donald Trump has walked back his suggestion that scientists test whether disinfectants like bleach could be injected into the human body to fight Coronavirus.

According to the Washington Post, the president, who floated the idea at a White House briefing on Thursday, claimed he was only being sarcastic.




“I was asking a question sarcastically to reporters like you just to see what would happen,” Trump said.

Trump offered the idea right after a presentation that said disinfectants could kill the novel coronavirus on surfaces and in the air.

“I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute,” Trump said, adding, “And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside, or almost a cleaning? 

“Because you see it gets inside the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that.”

The next day, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany accused the media of taking Trump’s words out of context.

 According to McEnany, what the President meant was that Americans should consult with their doctors about treatment. 

“President Trump has repeatedly said that Americans should consult with medical doctors regarding coronavirus treatment, a point that he emphasized again during yesterday’s briefing,” she said.

Trump’s alleged query came immediately after William N. Bryan, the acting undersecretary for science and technology at the Department of Homeland Security, gave a presentation on the potential impact of summer heat and humidity, which also included references to tests that showed the effectiveness of different types of disinfectants. 

He recounted data from recent tests that showed how bleach, alcohol and sunlight could kill the coronavirus on surfaces.

Trump has previously claimed that the arrival of summer would help fight the coronavirus outbreak without resorting to measures that carry significant economic ramifications. 

The study Bryan presented appeared to support those claims to some degree, although its results have not been peer-reviewed.
