Americans still drinking bleach to cure Covid

In April, US President Donald Trump said drinking disinfectant could cure Covid.

It looks as if some Americans still believe him.

In the state of Texas, 50 people made themselves sick by drinking bleach to combat corona this month. The North Texas Poison Center blamed misleading information about Covid-19. 

“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 an injection inside or almost a cleaning? It sounds interesting to me,” said Trump in April. 

Scientists rubbished the claims, which the president reportedly picked up from a church group promoting bleach as a corona-cure.
