Coronavirus: ‘Drinking Bleach Could Cause Health Complications, Death’ – NCDC Warns


The Nigeria Center for Disease Control, NCDC, has warned Nigerians against drinking bleach as treatment for Coronavirus infection.

This advice comes days after William Bryan, acting head of the US Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate, presented the results of US government research that indicated that Coronavirus appears weak when exposed to sunlight and heat.

The study also claimed that bleach could kill the virus in saliva or respiratory fluids within five minutes and isopropyl alcohol could kill it even more quickly.

Reacting, NCDC in a post shared via its Twitter handle, warned against taking bleach as a preventive measure to kill the virus, adding that bleach exposes a person to health complications and even death.
