On Thursday at the press briefing in the White House, US President Donald Trump suggested his science advisors to use Ultraviolet light (UV) and disinfectant injections to cure the Coronavirus. Trump said, “And then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute, there a way we can do something by an injection inside or almost a cleaning. Because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that. So, that you’re going to have to use medical doctors with, but it sounds interesting to me.”
Meanwhile, the United States has seen a record number of deaths in the 24-hour span today. Over 3100 people have died of coronavirus in the US in 24 hours.
