Trump’s disinfectant remark has caused a stir in the entire country, with several concerned parties ringing up the hotline calls in the wake of the POTUS’s absurd sentence. The Governors of most states were very concerned when their citizens started ringing them up as Trump called for disinfectants to be a potential remedy to COVID-19.
What Was Trump’s Disinfectant Remark?
Whitmer told ABC’s “This Week” that calls rose after Trump spoke last Thursday about using disinfectants “by injection inside or almost a clearing,” adding that residents listen to the “person with the most powerful position on the planet,” whether the comments were “serious or not.”
The Governor mentioned that with people calling with varied concerns need to be heard, and then given medically accurate statements- so as to not lead to any bigger problems while they are already suffering from one. She had one thing to say to these hotline calls- disinfectants were not to be ingested, injected, or digested under any condition whatsoever.
The Maryland Emergency Management Agency had to send out warning messages to its population to not use disinfectant as a medicine. Hogan, the governor of Maryland chastised the POTUS saying that it isn’t surprising that a remark from the most powerful man on this planet could give out wrong signals to people who are looking towards him as their ray of hope. Therefore, Trump’s disinfectant remark could possibly lead to a widespread casualty that would add to the death toll left by COVID-19.
The Maryland governor said Trump should ensure his message during press conferences are “fact-based.”
As it goes with Trump, he later took back his statements mentioning that he was simply parodying the health workers who have been trying every which way to find out a cure for the global pandemic.
