USA Snapshot 2020: Lysol Forced To Issue Statement: Under No Circumstances Should You Inject, Ingest, Or In Any Other Way Put Its Products Into Your Body

I think this episode has finally answered the question: Can someone possess a negative IQ?

Lysol did not mention Trump in its statement, phrasing the situation with abundant tact: "due to recent speculation and social media activity".

Marina Pitofsky, The Hill, April 24, 2020:
Lysol manufacturer Reckitt Benckiser on Friday issued a warning that "under no circumstance" should its products be administered into the human body or be used as a treatment for the coronavirus, a day after President Trump discussed whether disinfectants could be used to treat the disease.

The company, which also sells Dettol in the United Kingdom, shared in a statement on its website that "due to recent speculation and social media activity," they had "been asked whether internal administration of disinfectants may be appropriate for investigation or use as a treatment for coronavirus."

"As a global leader in health and hygiene products, we must be clear that under no circumstance should our disinfectant products be administered into the human body (through injection, ingestion or any other route). As with all products, our disinfectant and hygiene products should only be used as intended and in line with usage guidelines. Please read the label and safety information," the company shared Friday.

Trump on Thursday during a White House briefing suggested medical experts should study exposing the human body to heat and light as a treatment for coronavirus. He also asked if there was a way to inject disinfectant.
I await Dr. Mengele's attempts today to convince us we did not hear him say what he said yesterday.
