Reckitt Benckiser, the maker-company of Lysol and Dettol appealed to the buyers not to drink its products. The clarification came after President Donald Trump said that injecting disinfectants could be a possible cure for COVID-19.
On Friday, the company issued a warning stating that consumption of disinfectants is dangerous for health. Reportedly, this statement followed “recent speculation and social media activity.”
RB further added that the usage of the product should be as per the guidelines.
The company said that it is responsible for providing the mass with recent and authentic information as suggested by a top public health specialist.
“And then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in one minute. Is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning … it would be interesting to check that,” Trump said. “It sounds interesting to me,” he added.
However, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chief Medical Correspondent of CNN quickly pointed out that this was simply wrong.
