US President Donald Trump has suggested the possibility of "injection" of disinfectant into a COVID-19 affected person as a deterrent to the virus. He did not specify the kind of disinfectant.

Donald Trump suggests \'injection\' of disinfectant to treat COVID-19

Trump’s suggestions came after Bill Bryan, who leads the Department of Homeland Security's science and technology division, gave a presentation on a research his team has conducted that shows that the virus doesn't live as long in warmer and more humid temperatures.

"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."

Trump's suggestions have snowballed into severe criticism among Medical professionals
