Experts have warned against the suggestion of US President Donald Trump to consider the use of dis-infectant in the fight against Coronavirus.
This he said during the White House coronavirus briefing on Thursday.
Reckitt Benckiser, which owns Lysol and Dettol, also reacted to the claim, saying “under no circumstance” should its products be administered into the human body.
They stated that it poses danger to human health.
Some medical professionals further condemned the idea, warning the substance is poisonous and dangerous when mishandled.
Vin Gupta, a pulmonologist and global health policy expert, was quoted as saying: “This notion of injecting or ingesting any type of cleansing product into the body is irresponsible, and it’s dangerous. It’s a common method that people utilise when they want to kill themselves.”
