COVID-19: Don’t Drink Bleach, NCDC Warns After Donald Trump’s Comments


The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control has cautioned the public against consuming bleach or other disinfectants as proffered by United States President, Donald Trump.

Trump had, at a news conference on Thursday, suggested using powerful cleaning agents, through an injection, as a possible COVID-19 cure.

The US President, while briefly addressing his advisor, Dr Deborah Birx, said, “I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it (the virus) out in a minute — one minute.

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 it does a tremendous number on the lungs.”

Amid global shock and outrage over Trump’s comments, the NCDC strongly advised against drinking disinfectants.

The agency, in a tweet on Saturday, said, “It is important to note that bleach and other disinfectants should be used to clean surfaces. They should not be consumed by people to treat COVID-19.
