April 24, 2020
President Trump responded to a presentation by Bill Bryan from the Department of Homeland security on how to fight COVID-19 by suggesting that injecting the body with disinfectant could serve as treatment. In Bryan’s presentation, he explained isopropyl alcohol can kill the virus in 30 seconds.
In the presentation, Bill Bryan said the virus dies the fastest in the presence of direct sunlight.
He also said the US are currently testing readily available disinfectants and have already tested bleach on the virus.
The expert claimed bleach can kill the virus within five minutes.
He also said Isopropyl alcohol will kill it in 30 seconds.
Mr Bryan claimed the virus will be killed faster by rubbing the alcohol.
The US are also investigating the state of the disease in saliva.
Following the presentation, the President of the United States took it upon himself to summerise what he thought was some of the main points of the presentation.
He said: “Right, then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it (the coronavirus) out (of the body) in a minute, one minute, and is there a way we can do something like that?

“By injection inside, almost a cleaning, because you see it gets in the lungs and does the job and does a tremendous number on the lungs so it would be interesting to check that.
“So that you’re going to have to use medical doctors for that but it sounds interesting to me, so we’ll see.”
The President supported the idea of injecting disinfectant despite health experts warning against it.
One doctor who is part of Stanford medical team’s fight against the coronavirus said: “Injecting disinfectant into your body will kill you.

“While it feels completely unnecessary to even say this, people drank fish tank cleaner containing chloroquine because of what they heard from rumors about the substance.
“We must fight deadly misinformation no matter how stupid.”
After seeing the clip, a second doctor tweeted: “As a physician, I can’t recommend injecting disinfectant into the lungs or using UV radiation inside the body to treat COVID-19.
“Don’t take medical advice from Trump,” he warned.
The President has been desperate to find a cure for the disease in order to restore the economy and win the upcoming election.
Unemployment rates in the United States have now soared above 26 million amid the coronavirus lockdown.
The figures translate to a real unemployment rate of 20.6 percent, the highest level since 1934.
On the week ending April 18, another 4.4 million Americans filed unemployment claims.
It is the fifth consecutive week of more than three million claims.
The US department of labor released the shocking statistics on Thursday.
They wrote that April’s average weekly unemployment claims rates were 5.7 million.
According to the International Monetary Fund, the US economy is expected to contract 5.9 percent this year.
