President Donald Trump suggested the possibility of an "injection" of disinfectant into a person infected with the coronavirus as a deterrent to the virus during his daily briefing Thursday.
Trump made the remark after Bill Bryan, who leads the Department of Homeland Security's science and technology division, gave a presentation on research his team has conducted that shows that the virus doesn't live as long in warmer and more humid temperatures. Bryan said, "The virus dies quickest in sunlight," leaving Trump to wonder whether you could bring the light "inside the body."
"So supposing we hit the body with a tremendous whether it's ultraviolet or just a very powerful light and I think you said that hasn't been checked because of the testing," Trump said, speaking to Bryan during the briefing. "And then I said, supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or some other way, and I think you said you're going to test that, too."
He added: "I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning? As you see, it gets in the lungs, it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that."
He didn't specify the kind of disinfectant.
Medical professionals, including Dr. Vin Gupta, a pulmonologist, global health policy expert and an NBC News and MSNBC contributor. were quick to challenge the president's "improper health messaging."

I think the President was sort of joking around. The media has broom sticks up their butts.
I am ready to inject MSNBC and other parts of the Fakestream Media with disinfectant.
They still don’t understand the concept of “trolling”.
The virus dies quickest in sunlight,” leaving Trump to wonder whether you could bring the light “inside the body.”
“SON”LIGHT can kill COVID 19!
The Revival That Stopped Contagious Diseases
Figuratively speaking, of course. The reality is that most of them have something else up their butts.
Yeah, he never said this at all.
Shut your filthy, stinking, lying mouths, NBC.
The Left has to go. All of them. ASAP.
Progressive Leftists are so far to the left of the normal bell shape curve of human responses, theyve left their sense of humor behind them.
This is a bunch of crap. He didn’t suggest that. I watched it. These people are despicable.
I thought Jonathan Karl asked the absurd question first, to POTUS and Bill Bryan.
And, that Trump’s ‘question’ was in reply to Karl’s absurdity.
I’ll have to look for a replay.
Yeah, I got the same thing. Trump likes to get going and just throw things around. He wasn’t suggesting injecting a disinfectant but the media can’t helpe itself.
RE: This is a bunch of crap. He didnt suggest that. I watched it. These people are despicable.
Exactly what did Trump say?
It’s called brainstorming. Why isn’t there something that can disinfect blood or a way to apply light to blood as it passes out and then back into a person, a sort of disinfecting dialysis? Obviously, doctors would know why this sounds bizarre, but didn’t the movie Fantastic Voyage show us a very early version of endoscopy?
He was joking, a gee i wish we col’d do that kind of thing.
We actually do have many types of light therapies that do inject light into the body. We have LED lights that do this, Super Luminous LEDs, and cold lasers that do this, and depending on their configurations, can beam many different kinds of helpful wavelengths of light energy into the body for healing and pain relief and disease fighting reasons.
So even joking he’s not incorrect in his statement.
Lets inuect a pro conservative pro Republican Christian nanobot into them or...use drones.
The left has no sense of humor. They are incapable of understanding Trump’s humor. The pathetic part is that they truly have no idea that it makes them look dumber than a box of rocks.
I do remember yrs ago the doc would instill some kind of bleach solution into chest tubes.....but the memory.....
Partisan Media Shills update.
Bringing UV light into the body?
Been used medicine for over a hundred years
